I hope people will fish the cicadas in the warmwater streams, for bass and carp, and not just pound the wild trout streams in the cicada zone.

This will be a great opportunity to catch big carp on dry flies.

That is my main excitement with this hatch, Dwight. Yeah there are a few local wild trout streams, one in particular, that I'm curious to see during this hatch, but generally the Lancaster crew's (at least Sal and me) excitement is over the 'Stoga and the prospect of catching huge carp on dries.

If we get them in numbers in Lancaster County my focus will be smallmouth and carp.

Haven't seen hide nor hair of one yet. Doubt soil temperatures are close to that magical 64 degree mark. We just had a recent newspaper article about cold soil temperatures delaying srping planting.

I absolutely demolished big fish after big fish on the Little J. when the cicadas were on it, what 3,5 years ago. It was fantastically spectacular. Rarely have I experienced something so unequivocally great as this: Like the Susquehanna in the 90's. It was flat-out fantastic fishing and doing it in the fast water was the best. Great. Just Great. I'm hoping to get to the Bushkill in the Lehigh Valley when it happens. That's a creek I don't think I've laid eyes on in, hmm.... 11 years? It's got the right mix for me.
