Dear mike,

You started this thread a while back. You've recently posted on other threads but never followed up on this one. Can you please not keep us waiting any longer? I know I'm not the only one waiting to hear your info.

Fished it yesterday (not for trout) and the water was 74 in the Palisades area. Saw plenty of rainbows hanging on stream bottom. That and a bazillion suckers. I've never seen so many suckers!

Also fished it Sunday. Water temp just got to 70 at 1:30 so we left. Fished just above ya. Caught some smallies and a pile of bows....including 1 eyeball from a trout that looked at my caddis emerger just a little to close as I picked up the cast. Yuk.Water stayed in the 67-69 degree range for most of the morning. Freaking trico blizzard and the fish were not user friendly. Had to work hard for them.

I am waiting to see if I can get some more info, either here or elsewhere. Apparently, few anglers that participate on this message board actually fish the stream anymore.

I've been there with my nephew 4 times since mid June. I need some type of hint.

Fewer herons? More hotties on the jogging trail? If I remember looking at the gauges, they didn't blow out the river (like they usually do) prior to opening the lake. They built something large down near the paper mill. More suckers and fewer carp than in years before. More mosquitoes than any place I've fished in last 10 years. Am I getting close or am I just oblivious when I'm fishing?

Mike - reflecting on your OP, my catch rates on the Tulpy were not as high this year as certain ones in the 90s, but the trouts were better in size and quality. The hatchery has changed the diet or some process so that the stockies are more beautiful, less banged up and better fighting.

To get over jet lag from a couple of weeks in MT, I hit the Tulpy this week to see what was happening, and at the gauge, all I caught and saw were browns. The big rainbows last month in the same areas were not around. Got a nice little rock bass and 2 sunnies too, and tried to get the couple of carp that were rising to eat a caddis. Kray observed that there are fewer carp and more suckers and that squares with my experience now that I'm thinking about it.

I have noticed people standing on top of fish flailing away at shadows.
Where have all the carp gone? Were there that many lost in the fish kill a few years ago that they have not recovered? Canary in a coal mine?

I fished a saturday evening about 3 weeks ago. I was about 200 yards below Rebers Bridge. Caught 7, all browns. 5 were 14"plus and 1 native brown (didnt look stocked) about 10". All were taken on a #28 grey hackle against the roadside bank in the shadows. Saw lots of suckers but very true, no carp.

Water temps based on the gauge still look good in the AM and have been good for the past few days. In a normal year I would expect the cold water reserve in the lake to run out within the next 10 days, so if you are still thinking about tricos, etc, there is little time spare if this is a "normal" year.

For an unknown reason, I fished it with PhilC this morning. We caught plenty of rock bass, crappie and smallmouth. A couple of trout were landed but not many. The tricos were quite weak this morning. The caddis hatched fairly strong though. Humbling morning and reminded me why I hate that sucker factory. LOL.

Seems to be fewer trout but the size is larger imo.

A fisheries management change occurred this spring in the Tulpehocken DH area. Did you notice anything different from recent past years' fishing experiences vs this year's experiences. Were catches or catch rates worse, better, or the same? If your response depended upon the general location, then feel free to break it down into two stretches.....1) Rebers iron bridge upstream to Blue Marsh Dam and 2) Rebers iron bridge downstream to the covered bridge.
Thanks. Yes, I will reveal the difference after the responses are in.


Anyday now.

I fished it on a hot Saturday morning in late June. Only time the last couple years. Catching was good early, but shut completely down around 10. Lots of healthy browns, only one bow. This was around the 422 overpass. Caught a number of smallies as well.
