Kind of makes sense to me that we would see grannoms in SE PA. What is the limiting factor? Caddis are notoriously tolerant of marginal water. Tully is a well known caddis factory.

Brachycentrus numerosus--Penn's Creek Caddisfly, Dark Grannom, Dark Shadfly; adults have dark-mottled wings and dark blackish green bodies; pupae usually dark with green lateral stripes and dark wingcases.

Brachycentrus lateralis--Striped Grannom, Dark Grannom, Black Caddis; adults have dark wings and pupae are typically dark olive with tan lateral stripes and dark wingcases.

Brachycentrus nigrosoma--Little Dark Grannom, Little Black Caddis; adults/pupae are smaller and darker than numerosus.

Brachycentrus appalachia--Apple Caddis, Light Shadfly, Light Grannom; adults have very light tannish or grayish wings (almost white when freshly emerged) and apple green bodies; pupae are apple green with tan wingcases.

(Brachycentrus solomoni and incanu are also found in PA. B. solomoni is very similar to numerosus, and incanu is rather rare.)

Most "grannom" activity in PA occurs from mid-April to mid-May. During that time, if you carry imitations of dark and light grannoms (adults and pupae) in sizes #14-16, you should have most bases covered.

JayL,

I couldn't agree with you more on the Cdc and elk. I haven't needed anything else during the hatch for the last 2 years. I say needed, but I still have other patterns every year that may or may not be tried. You can't argue with the fish though. Took my best fish in 5 or 6 years on the Cdc and elk last year. This year maybe a subsurface affair though, at least for the start.

Anyone have any word on the grannoms? All I know is that Bob hasn't made any mention of them on the Neshannock yet. Hopefully they're a bit late and the water levels will be somewhat fishable when they do come.

Ryfy -
Actually, the grannoms - especially last year - have been hatching a little early in recent years.
When I first started flyfishing, they usually didn't hatch until the last week of april - on oil and sugar creeks anyway.
Guess we just had a good old fashioned winter, and spring so far
