Codorus Creek, York Co. - 9-6-2012

I just had to get out for a few hours today. I've been wanting to get on some wild trout for a while.

I brought with me two rods, my TfO 7'3" 2wt finesse because I love the way it cast small flies and the fight it puts into small trout. But more appropriately, I decided on using my 7' 5 weight.

The Codorus is just lined with brush, briars, stinging nettles and vines. There is zero room for a backcast so most casts are tight roll casts often backhanded with sticks or some sort of crap in the way.

The shorter rod has more back bone and I can roll cast chunkier nymphs/ crayfish / buggers to those undercuts on the far bank. While the two weight is lots of fun its just not as versatile a tool as my cheapo 7' 5wt.

I saw rises immediately upon arriving streamside. Some little ones coming up and a few slightly bigger ones. It was overcast, muggy, but the trout were happy feeding.

Not really anything coming off but I managed a couple small browns on hand tied brown and black ants. Missed a few others on the ants and a crayfish pattern. I had nice hard take on the crayfish and got excited sending my line into the briars. The fishing petered off when the sun came out and the trout all seemingly vanished.

Always fun sight fishing, looking for rises and tryin to find that line, then watch a wild brown dart up from near where you thought it was, to grab a little fly you can barely see from the bank.

Cool report. I've fished Codorus a couple times. Above some sort of sawmill I think? I also caught a 18" sucker there - with my bare hand lol.

Looking at that order picture there I think I know where you were at. That section of water has been hit really hard this year and yet I still try my luck there. No smallmouths? Seems like down stream that way the smallies are more abundant than chubs! Pm me if you want to go out there sometime Im right off rt616 and rt216 so a stone throw away from the creek

I work third shift so I get out some mornings, have breakfast and pick a direction. But I'm usually done by noon cuz I gotta get my sleep. I can fish evenings mid-week sometimes.

I ll send a pm next time if I plan on headin over that way.

Not my favorite spots, they're ok but they were the only pics I took that day.
