"Tully" just after myerstown 12/6/2006
From lancaster county
wow! and mean wow! we started fishing in the cold morning around 9:00. when we arrived at the stream on flyfisherman told us when asked that he landed 10 fish in 10 minutes! so we promply started fishing and i belive him! the first 3 casts for each of us we each landed 3 fish! what a day. we started at the limestone fish hatchery and fished about 1 1/2 miles down stream. in the end we each had about 30 fish. i found out that they hatchery lost 12,000 fish in the first flood. 5,000 in the next and about 3,000 in the last. wow! do the math! unfortunatly the stream gets hammered and you can see the affects downstream. we counted about 40 dead fish. the good news is people are releasing them.
a interesting note: i thought rainbows breed in the summer, but to my suprise i landed a rainbow that spurted sperm in the stream and had another fill my sweatshirt pocket full of eggs. once we saw this we respected the fish and stopped fishing. i hope they do it. i love wild fish!
anyways i recommend to respect any breeding fish. mostly in the rapids and shallows is where we witnessed them breeding....but if your close to the area, visit the stream you wont be disappointed! i sure wasent!
