Tricos, ants and caddis emergers are about all I throw on those streams this time of year.

Sounds good. Does not look like the water is well suited for rolling nymphs along the bottom.

Are there any maps of the LL showing where the "sections" are? I could not find any.

The "County Guide" map on the PFBC site has all the Class A's, Special Regs and Stocked Streams on the map.

Here is a link: County Guide Map

Zoom in on the area and click on the type(s) of streams you are looking to find. You can click on the stream itself and info will pop up including the stream section. HTH.

Yo sal

It's a bit involved, but if you go to the F&B Commish page and look up the stocking info, there are GPS listings for some of the Sections.

Follow up on my trip to Little Lehigh and Monocacy. Little Lehigh was very kind to me. I caught 4 terrific Rainbows ranging from 18 to 20 inches downstream of the heritage Fly Shop.

Monocacy was not quite as full of trout. Caught one there in the Gertrude Fox section. Tons of small deer there. Also found a pair of waders hanging from a tree and a spinning rod and reel underneath them. Looked like they had been there since April. Only thing missing was the skeleton.

Both are very nice waters for trout and I am sure glad to have had a chance to fish them. Little Lehigh definitely merits a return visit. Thanks for the tips.

As Camp witnessed there are a lot of stockers around these days as well. It's not like the aquarium effect by the hatchery with slobs laying around all over but still a lot of stockers hang there too.
It does get a lot of pressure still in the fly area and open regs. This will make the fish picky even stockers. The wild fish will be even more skittish and less cooperative to fisherman.
There were always a lot of wild fish around but I believe this stream always struggled to produce larger fish. I've only fished it since '03 but Don Douple mentioned it in a presentation back at that time. I would think this has to do with pressure, lack of structure, and the 10th street bridge which cuts off the large fish that roam into the Lehigh from getting back up. That said I think it's always had enough fish to be Class A but mostly a lot of small fish.
I do think this year will help bring things back. I've seen fish that would typically be around 8-9 in push toward 10 inches, getting a bit closer to spawning size.
I have also seen a major come back in vegetation in some areas. The covered bring by Ott st being a prime example. It was relatively sandy just last year and now it is heavily grown in.
