Lots of stocked trout remaining in South Central PA.. I would imagine the same is true in SE PA. Find the holes a little ways off the beaten path.

This past weekend was awesome for fishing SEPA, cool temps, good flows and willing stockies that are above average makes for good times. The best day was yesterday in the rain.

After Memorial Day is my favorite time of year to fly fish for stockies - particularly in standard regulation waters where the trout haven't seen tons of flies. The streams are fully stocked, the bait fishermen are gone, the weather is pleasant, and there are usually rising fish (especially at dusk). Once the water gets lower and clearer fly fishing can be more effective than metal lures or nightcrawlers and bait fisherman pressure doesn't mean much. Go for it.

How long it lasts is a function of the weather. In a cool, wet summer it can last all summer (i.e 2011); in a hot dry summer (i.e 2012) it can end in early June. Typically I have good luck until about July 4th. Trout have a way of finding good spots, so learn to find the good spots and don't worry about where the fish were stocked. When it gets warm PA has plenty of other options for fly fishermen. Smallies are the standard answer, but bass bugging is a traditional form of angling that is a blast and fly fishing for carp is challenging and fun for a different experience.

I love the color the rainbow stockies put on once they have been in for a while.
