Looks like it could start soon. Would it be considered poor taste if we all agree to report sightings?

I have quick overview blog post lined up this week about the cicadas. I find it pretty interesting as it they were pretty annoying 17 years ago. Still trying to figure out which of the broods is the the most prolific?

I think it would be cool if all anglers who read here would actually chase this hatch around the effected area. It would be like a parade.

These things will emerge as the factors effect them. Now today, then tomorrow. Should have been here yesterday!

PFBC posts the hatch locations and time for the great white hatch fleet and people follow it every year. Why would this be bad?

Furnace Hills, northern Lancaster County-Sal and I were fishing on Saturday, came into one small streatch of the stream and heard a single cicada on the far bank. His chirps were soon responded to by a single cicada on the close bank, right behind us. The plague is coming. Oh yes. And it shall be good.

Compiling info for one of these myself. Soil temps are climbing.

Brood II is the most prolific.

I'd have to say the cicada hatch in Central PA a few years ago was one of the best kept secrets of all time. Really not peep until it was about over.

Central PA hatch was for sure a well kept secret hardly saw a angler fishing them in all the days. I ran out of flies they were destroyed. Im quite certain though the next round Daryl and his other brother Daryl and Johnny Buttnut will be out.

There were quite a few flyfishers fishing the cicadas in central PA in 2008 and the local fly shops were cranking out imitations to keep up with demand. The crowds weren't like the Green Drake circus or the famous sulphur hatches, but there were quite a few people out there throwing big black bugs.

And wasn't it discussed a fair bit on here? I think the info was available but most people just aren't used to the idea of fishing the cicada hatch. The Hendricksons, Grannoms, Sulphurs, Green Drakes come around every year. The cicadas only come out every 17 years.

I hardly saw anyone fishing it until close to the end troutbert and I fished it everyday of it. I don't know where you were fishing to discuss levels of people or how many flies were cranking out of local fly shops because I don't spend much time sitting on the porch of the feathered hook. Yes It was talked about some on here but I remember it being closer to the end of it.

I got into some moderate amounts of them (deliberately) on Cove Creek in Bedford County last time (brood X, I think it was). Fun, but not all that spectacular. I recall reading about people getting some really big fish on top, though.
