Heading to cross forks this weekend to fish the streams up there. Any good suggestions on what to use? I plan on tossing streamers most of the time in kettle creek but we might also go way off the beaten path to some small creeks to nymph a little for some brownies and brookie a. I wasn't sure if anyone has been up there recently because there aren't any stream reports for there but let me know if there is anything else we should throw in the water

I just posted a stream report for Pine/Lyman Run.

I had luck on everything from egg patterns (on Pine), to small beadhead nymphs like HE or PT. Your standard stuff. Nothin' fancy. Pulled a big black stonefly off a leaf I snagged. Only stonefly pattern I had w/ me was a amber/gold thing. It worked though. Seems they aren't being too picky right now.

Green weenies ALWAYS work on Kettle!

I'd cast some big dries if it were me.

I dry dropped with a size 12 royal wulff, a size 10 EHC, and a size 12 white wulff. Didn't raise a single fish. Doesn't mean it won't work, it just didn't work for me.

I know last November when I went up there I didn't catch a single fish on kettle but got a few fingerling browns on some tiny feeder streams on prince nymphs. Hoping streamers are the ticket for some big boys

I never fished Kettle this late in the year, so I can't speak much about it. There's so much fishing in that area though, you should have no problem finding fish.

Are you talking about the ffo section at the 144 bridge?

Carter Camp is above that. You could try the BE Area.

The FFO stretch at the 144 bridge and upstream got a few batches of fresh trout in October. The stretch should be fishing pretty well right now.

Well the fly fish section was a bust pretty much. Under the bridge we caught two or three but didn't see another fish for a mile or so up stream. We went to cross forks creek and got a few nice color rainbows and two tiny brookies. Fished kettle creek near the lake and didn't do well there either but the water was at 40degrees there either way it was a good three days of fly fishing up north.

I never have much luck by the lake itself, except for SMB. Honestly, my favorite stretch is above Oleona, but I never fished it in the late fall/winter.

Really? It gets pretty warm down there, doesn't it? Is it just great in the early season?

I think he's talking about the upper lake at Oly Bull SP.
