I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you guys are on the way to becoming very good fly-fishermen but aren't quite there yet. The path to where you want to be runs along streams like the Lack. And Falling Spring Branch. And the Upper Delaware. And the Letort. You'll have to figure each one out on its own terms and on your own. It takes time on the water to figure out how to fish the best streams.

Tough audience! I have done well on the River a couple times, and had mild success others. It's definitely one you have to learn. On the other note, I know guys who have fly fished for 40 years and don't think they are "good," and that seems to be a common sentiment among experienced guys, so I'm sure that factors in the razzing.

Salt on the wounds, but I may humbly add that you may not want to read the article and head to the Brodhead either....

If i told you my first trip to Delaware River, Letort, Lehigh, Big Spring or Yough we're anything less than disappointing, I'd be lying. Wasn't sure they even held fish til I saw others catching them. I can remember taking trips to the Lower EB of the Delaware where I'd be on the river by 8am and not make my first cast until 20 minutes before dark. Did it 3-4 days in a row and learned a lot.... basically don't fish it if there's not a heavy hatch. LOL. Similar experiences on the others listed above.

Nothing is a better teacher than experience. It's also more gratifying when you do unlock the stream / river.

The river the OP questioned is one of those that warms and the fish tend to be transient in. This make figuring things out exponentially harder. I think A&G is the best place to start.

Wow...i think if i posted some of those responses it would have been deleted with the all new PC PAFF 3.0 version these days...that being said, i echo the responses above...maybe just a shitty day, move around try different things....try to intentionaly spook fish for next time?...all good...go during a good predictable hatch to see how many fish are in there.....been to plenty of spring creeks that you thought were void of fish and then a hatch shows their true colors.....cue the cyndi lauper

Never fished it, but I know brown trout... some days they just don't give a f#*! what you are throwing. If the barometric pressure or water has them in a foul mood you could swear they aren't in the river. I also know they may not be out of their nocturnal mindset quite yet, some places they just shutdown until the sun goes down. And one thing that I have learned this year fishing a couple different bodies of water is that brown trout move at insane rates to find the right water to survive in. If that river you fished has warmer sections they will not be in there and they will def. not be feeding if they are anchored down deep.

Just my two cents.

I love how all you guys think we're rookies lol. I guided for years on way better water than the Lackawanna. It was a last min trip for time restrictions my buddy was doing google searches all the way there. We did hit two spots. Not sure of the first location because he just told me how to get there and the second was a section in the park. Let me repeat myself. It was a last second trip for time issues. We were going to head to ny but his ex wife jammed that up. This is why I never post on this board. It's full of douchebags that are know it alls. Since you do your weekend get away on penns I will put money up that him and I smoke anyone on the stream!! I will show you how"bad we are lol.

Thanks to the guys that actually took this post serious. To the douchebags put your money where your mouth is because we will take you to school.

Oh, well why didn't you put it that way the first time. We are definitely the douchebags and you guys are clearly excellent fly fisherman. I mean, every ex guide I know is a phenomenal fisherman. Must just be that the Lacky isn't that good of a stream. I'd write it off as over hyped and move on to a better stream.

Don't get your flat-brimmed hat too steamed up over this. And don't put your bank account at such risk. There are more than a handful of guys on this board who think the Lackawanna is a pushover for huge browns and that Penns is a pushover for big browns. I fear you either a) overestimate your own expertise or b) underestimate the quality of fishermen you're taunting. You're not impressing anyone by telling them that you can catch fish in water paved with brown trout and lacking the ability to feed heavily year-round. I bet you're Hell on rivers like the Madison. Why don't you challenge someone to a duel on Falling Springs Branch? Or, next time you find a stretch of water that vexes you, try starting the post with "I thought my friend and I were very good fly-fishermen, but we hit the Lackawanna last weekend, and the fish seemed to disagree--what are we missing?" I bet if you do that, you'll be astounded at all the beta provided.

I wasn't offended when you stated you and your friend were very good fly fishermen. I think I am "pretty good too" but I have been shut out more this year than the previous 2-3 years combined, we all get humbled on the stream. I don't care if your George Daniels or Kelly Galloup. I think your just getting the typical message board hello. Its normal; take the info that some gave you and use it and take the beating some gave you too; just part of the process. No point in getting mad, its a message board.

"Smoke anyone on the stream"

I thought Fly Fishing Team USA was in Slovakia, you must of dropped out at the last minute to get that chance to get skunked on the Lackawanna.

How dare you suggest your such a fantastic fisherman after getting skunked? You might want to just check yourself buddy, there are plenty of very very talented fisherman in PA.

I believe that I've just been called a douchebag which sounds an awful lot like something a douchebag would say. LOL.

It's fishing, check your ego at the door for God's sake.
