Fished in between Bowmanstown and Szokes Iron. Weather was overcast with periods of rain for most of the afternoon till the last hour and a half when it turned steady. My cousin and I picked up fish using Bwo's, Hendrickson's, and Caddis patterns on top. I had no interest in nymphing, it was all about the dry fly action. Fish were everywhere in the long pools below riffles. We fished it mountain side, but it seemed most of the fish were rising on the highway side. we moved to the highway side, and most of the fish were rising mountain side. lol That's how it is sometimes. Fish were just out of reach most of the times, especially when the wind blew through the gap. My cousin picked up a beautiful 12 in brookie, that I should have took a picture of. I also landed a very healthy bulldog of a brown. He peeled line of a couple times. A couple smaller browns were mixed in, but all were healthy without fin wear. Blue eye spots and red adipose were on most, but most likely were fingerlings or really nice holdovers.

Looks good, fished out of Rockport on Saturday, saw one riser and exactly one Henderson but had a great day subsurface. It will be a good spring on the Lehigh.

I'll be on the Lehigh Thursday, can't wait!! I don't get excited for nymphing, so I'm glad to hear that there is action on top.

Good stuff! The solid reports continue to trickle in with the fish being spread out top to bottom on the Lehigh.

Based on your pic I was a bit upstream from you on Saturday. Though there were not too many rising fish, we did find a few. Quill Gordons (which have been hatching for over a week) and BWOs. But man, was it cold and raw out. I think I am still thawing out!

I was on the river Saturday. At this level the river is really better to be fished on foot. You can get just about anywhere.

Shane,

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, bot those are stocked chubs. The state just adjusted their food supply to make them have those spots.
