There is always a small sz. 16 quill gordon that hatches on warmer days in late winter early spring. It is not the big one..b.w.o.'s were showing as well. i will start reporting on my site whats going on up here beginning of march...

Bob,

I fished the delayed harvest on the Pine at Slate Run today, and saw 2 mayflies. One was small maybe a size 18 or 20, which I assumed was an olive. The other one I would estimate to be a size 12 or 14, coloration from 10 ft or so away to be a Quill Gordon. Maybe a little smaller, wish I could have caught it to verify.

I'm calm, I'm calm! I just find the humor in naming our mini-jam the "Quill Gordon Summit", yet we run the risk of missing the QG yet again! Last year some swore we picked a date that was too early, we ended up being too late. This year, who knows? It's not REALLY about the hatch, of course. I don't think anyone was complaining last year about the QG Summit turning into the March Brown Summit!

Don't worry, there's NO quill gordons hatching yet! The way the extended forecast looks like things should be fine. They are calling for colder then normal temps for the next couple of weeks. So, as long as we don't get some very high temps things should be normal.

I this your way of selling those quill gordons you mistakenly tied on size 16 hooks?

In the past month I'm still continuing to see a lot of stoneflies. Although I can't say I've paid particularly close attention to this....it does indeed seem to me that they have been heavier and have continued longer this year than I can ever remember. A few nights ago, while bass fishing, I half expected to see caddis but the stones were still coming off and trout were still feeding on 'em. I'm wondering if the cold conditions and stable water levels we've seen this spring may have had something to do with this(?). To be sure, most of them I'm seeing are on warm water creeks and rivers, but they are still on trout streams around here too - and lots of 'em.

What have you been seeing? Does it seem like this has been a very good year for early stoneflies in your neck of the woods?

I was at the Susquehanna near Marietta Sunday night and the were coming off heavy. Seemed a little larger than the very early ones. These were 3/4 to an inch long.

There were a lot of stoneflies coming off Muddy Creek - York Co. on Sunday afternoon. Occasional rises but nothing consistent.

There are still plenty of Stone Flies hatching in SE PA, the first big may flies are just now starting. The time for the QG jam is probably perfect.
