The little early stones were all over the Susquehanna River near Harrisburg today - both the little blacks and the larger browns. The browns were pretty big (roughly #16) and very active on the surface, esp the bank side eddies.

Me too! This year, I'm going to hit the Susquehanna big time for carp and channel cats.

There are so very many common carp and channel cats in the lower Susquehanna. With most of the smallmouth gone, I kinda gave up for the last couple years, but I'll be back with a vengeance (and my 8wt) pretty soon.

So many times I have seen lots of carp sipping flies off the surface, and this year I'll be after the "fresh water bonefish"

I won't say one or two weren't seen, but there is no way, no way that any hatch has started. We get this kind of thing all the time and it never pans out. Hatches will get under way within two weeks of either side of when they would be expected. Trust me.

If you want to see stone flies definitely have lunch on the deck at Duke's on a warm early spring day.

Wait... I was under the impression that stoneflies were a western thing. Do we have stoneflies in the Eastern US? I've only been fly fishing for about 8 months, but I've never heard of anybody fishing stone fly patterns in PA...
