I did well on SMB on penns, during the green drakes. Every piece of bumpy water for 5 miles had a dozen anglers on it. I saw rising bass in the frog water, and figured it was good enough. I caught about ten of them from 8 to 15 inches. Long casts and tough drifts. They refused me once or twice, too.

It wasn't bad.

I worked at a gas station next to the river when I was a kid. Granted, it was close to hay creek, as well. There were tons of sulphurs all spring, and into summer. I am positive that some of them came from the river, as I had seen them hatching there.

Everybody knows about the white fly hatch on the warmwater rivers, but what other major hatches are there? How early in the year do you see both insects and surface feeding fish? Has anyone ever created a warmwater river hatch chart? I've never seen one.

On Bald Eagle Creek, above Milesburg, smallmouth bass come right up and take size 16 sulphurs. I've seen only rather small bass doing this.

But a friend of mine caught a 21 inch smallmouth on a #14 Light Cahill on Loyalsock Creek during a Cahill hatch. I'm very jealous.


Hit the Skuke in late April and May and you would think your on a central Pa limestoner with all the rises and hatches


What's hatching that early in the year? Caddis? Mayflies? I generally get on the warmwater rivers much later in the season.

It has a nice Cahill hatch around that time and good caddis hatches all year . I think documenting warmwater hatches would be something a lot of fly fisherman would be intrested in. Or a book on warwater fly fishing for the area

I live pretty close to da susky, what ever is hatching there is usually flying around my yard and landing on my door screen and such. I have not seen may flies yet but i have seen black stoneflies for a week or so. I took a picture of one, but it landed on something grey, so it not that great.

Alright, I admit it. I have no clue what "frog water" means, but I've seen it in reference to more than one stream.

Edumacate me!

"Frog Water" = slow water / back eddies on a stream or river

It was a wide, slow pool, relatively shallow pool.
