I"ll bet Clarks creek is crazy , those things have to be there if they are in Fishing creek valley unless i got the wrong county. There used to be a cricket migration on Clarks maybe still is but right before dark they would jump in and swim the widthof the creek to get to the one that was singin thier song it was awesome and the strikes were like sharks...........PaulG do you remember that?

I would think they're long overdue to have emerged in SEPA by now. I can't imagine that surface soil temps aren't long past 64 degrees.


It's not the surface soil temps, it is the soil temps at a certain depth (roughly around eight inches). Additionally, the soil temps don't need to just hit 64, they need to be sustained at 64 for a bit -- enough time for the body temperature of the nymph to reach 64.

In several locations, this latest heat wave was the first to put soil temps over that point for an extended period of time.

That said, there have been numerous recent sightings in central PA. DC and NYC have had them for weeks.

The question seems to be whether central PA will see higher numbers that it is seeing right now and whether the fish will start keying on them.

I'm trying to pick some target streams to explore this week with some cicada flies. Suggestions are welcome.

Dear Greenlander,

They are everywhere around my home now, and that includes Clarks and Stony Creek valleys. I must have splattered 20 - 30 of them against my windshield the last two days.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

I guess I'm headed to Clarks this week, then. Unless there's a better target in the area.

I'm cautiously optimistic that things will "heat up" soon, but I haven't heard any activity in my neck of the woods...

Nothing in northern Lancaster yet, but I'll be heading out into the Furnace Hills area this evening where the hatch was heavy last time around. I'll let you know!

Haven't seen one. Was in Lancaster Country Park yesterday doing the warm water thing. Nada. There was a sporadic cahill hatch coming off.

Read an article on PennLive that said not to expect them west of the Susquehanna.

Yeah, all of the sightings that I've seen reported thus far in SC PA have been east of the Susquehanna. I meant to note that yesterday, but forgot.

This brood isn't expected in Cumberland, York, Juniata, Franklin, Centre, etc counties. No Wayne county, either, sadly.

I spent some time on Clarks Creek today. The ridge to the North of Clarks Creek is thick with Cicadas. I couldn't find a stretch of stream that had decent activity (checked 3 different stretches of water). I saw one or two flying about while I fished, but the heavy activity was on the ridges on either side of the stream. I didn't bother fishing a cicada pattern and did fine using a caddis.

I headed over to the Stony Creek area on my way home. Nothing doing there. In one spot I could hear cicadas, but they were well off in the distance and not on the streamside of the road.

I'm guessing they've emerged wherever they are going to emerge in PA, and am not optimistic about fishing them.

Well I do not know where you are in Carbon County, but they are nowhere near Bowmanstown, Parryville, and Lehighton.
