May, for the opportunity to catch fish and generally for decent stream flow conditions. However, for the best overall experience when it comes to the pure beauty of the environment and the fish that we pursue under low fishing pressure conditions has probably placed October ahead of the month of May for me personally.

I like May the best although lately it seems to be too warm on average and stream levels are lower than normal.
Going to try Harman's in April (for the first time) so I hope it's a good month.

May because it'sthe time of year for the best hatches, October because that's the month I've caught the most trout.

May, on the brookie streams I fish in SE PA May usually has water levels and temps that cause fish to spread out. The rest of the year (except spawning time) the brookies mostly hold only in the biggest pools and you can't catch as many.

I like March and June for browns, but June has perfect weather!

Until rather recently, I would have said may. But as I get older, I really appreciate fishing in april now. You have nice big flies - quill gordons, hendrickson, and grannoms - that hatch in the middle of the day. And even get spinner falls with a few hours of daylight left.
No waiting around until dark for the fish to start rising good.
And all this right after the long cold winter is over, and I haven't fished for 3-4 months
Hard to beat it IMO.

Also really enjoy fishing BWO's in march - again daytime hatches

May here in PA as the weather is great, fish are active and willing to take flies in multiple presentations. And the water is still cool, making more streams and spots available to fish compared to June. In Wyoming, on the North Platte, definitely August. I am lucky enough to go for a week every year to twelve miles of private water on the North Platte and its tribs. That is big fish country out there. Not uncommon to have one out of every ten fish twenty plus. The Articulated Streamer, Nymphing and Trico fishing is the best I have ever seen. Eighty plus fish days between two people is normal.

I gotta say June. It's a combination of how good the fishing is and other people.

All spring, everyone, including me, has been chasing hatches on big water. We're all doing the same thing. It's fun and all, but it gets a bit crazy. We live by the schedule of the bugs, we're all resting at the same times and fishing at the same times. If you miss an event, you feel guilty, like you did it "wrong." This big crescendo right up to the jam and the drakes.

Then comes June. Most fishermen either hang it up, or at least take a break, seeing it as a lull in the hatches before the tricos start. But if you like big fish and big water, the stoneflies are really getting underway and you can pound pocket water with big nymphs. Most of these streams aren't too warm or low just yet. In addition to stones, there's always some caddis flyin around, and you can skate around high floatin dries and get big time strikes. Smaller streams are just getting to their best, and those uber hatches you think are gone are really just PEAKING there. Go to a deep woods stream and you'll find plenty of sulphers, caddis, cahills, and perhaps drakes, with good water levels, good temperatures, and aggressive and opportunistic fish. Great fishing in the morning right through the heat of the day. The woods are still that deep, beautiful green. The weather is PERFECT for camping. And guess what? The bigger waters still have enough mayflies to keep things interesting. Cahills, the bigger BWO varieties, blue quills, etc., and the spinner falls can be every bit as impressive as sulphers in May.

Yes, June is my favorite fishing month.

Late February Early March.

i love fishing in the winter. If there is no thawing going on you can have a banner of a day nymphing. The water levels are consitently up and there is far less competition. Any fish you catch is beatuiful.

I fish year round but this is my favorite time to be out.
