getting a jump-start on the learning here:

So I am actually sitting about 10 mins from the LL currently (working ) I hear some nasty storms are coming today. I am curious with the rain stirring things up if nymphing would be the way to go in higher water? Or is using dries just as good even after a few days of rain?

LOL....I wouldn't go that far but I have no problem kissin ass. You never know I might need Foxes help getting on some fish at the Jam.


I certainly don't have any issues with a little a$$ kissin' either but in the spirit of full disclosure I will not be attending the jam. I have to go to my "no frills rough it camp" in Centre County the following weekend.

In high, stained water tie on the biggest, blackest streamer you have in your box. This is probably the best chance you'll have at catching the larger fish.

Just read up on that a little bit. Might give them a shot tomorrow depending on water level and clarity.

If it's anything like the last brush up, just about anyone within 50 yards of the Heritage Fly Shop will be from paflyfish.

Just a conditions update for Foxfest II -

The LL has a flow of around 115 right now. That's perfectly fishable. The forecast shows anticipated precipitation amounts of under a half inch.

I'll wager that the stream will be very fishable tomorrow, and probably not off color too much, if at all.

As far as what to expect, bug wise - dunno. We could/should see some sulphur activity, craneflies, caddis, and the usual midges. There may be some BWO's as well.

Looks like a pretty nice day to be on the water.

H.A.

Well I see how it is.......In that case I won't need your help anyway because I would probably just out fish you anyway. Although it would be fun to teach an "Old Timer" a few new tricks.

What? Is that the sound of a gauntlet been thrown down?

Okay, those thinking about going early, check here before you leave in the morning. I'll post if I'm not going early due to the stream being blown out. I doubt that will happen but check to be sure.

DD, the "heated" pin is going back in as we speak!
