Man, this is an old thread. No that's not the brown I caught a few times now. He was way, way down stream in the C&R area. I haven't seen your particular brown before.
That pic is the handicapped deck from the Riparian Park. The park gets stocked pretty heavily. However there used to be a few hogs upstream in the no fishing water by the hatchery that I haven't seen in a while. Could have been one of those from up there.

Pennsadventures,
Wow...that is a fine brownie. Keep up the good work and I hope that mount turns out good for you. I am interested to find out if your doing a replica or a skin mount as well.
GOOD JOB!!!

They recently did some work up there with running a water line under the stream. I was told from a very reliable source that there was at least one "hog" up there under the shelf the stream dumps over. They thought they were going to have do divert the stream to do the work, but didn't have to.

I can't believe a fish that size would survive in the Riparian Park through the pounding it takes. I wonder if, as you say, it didn't get flushed out of its upstream holding area...

Its possible it survived also. Lititz is a small stream and trout are very skittish in it, as with most small spring creeks.

More likely it swam up from the Banta posted property or came down from the hatchery. Great fish BTW!

WG,

There were a few hogs in that pool. A brown and a rainbow. There was also a big brown up by the footbridge. That water line work is what made me think this brown was from up there and got pushed out with all the comotion.
From the hatchery down the stream is pretty devoid of holding water until you get to the park.

You can always have a mount made from the pic of the fish

i am havin a rep done of him...this guy has done trout for me before and they are better looking than skin mounts..when its finished i will show you what it looks like...actually its funny you say that there was a rainbow in that same area...i saw the fish but could not get it to take anything. its not the size of this one though i am guessing its 18-20 inches. anyone still fly fishing at all in the lancaster area i would like to meet up with some people cause i really don't know the area

Glad to hear you put that fish back. I know you said that in your previous post, but it was unclear once you mentioned about getting a mount done. Lititz Run is home to some large hogs and the reason they got that way is because they are released when caught. If this fish doesn't find a new home by the spring, chances are he will be creeled by the "put and take" crowd.

I know the rainbow you speak of and his lie is probably only 50 feet upstream of where you got that brown. He sits at the end of a run and guards it pretty well. I went after him a couple times, but with Lititz Run, you only get one or two chances before they get "skittish" and they're put down.

There are still people fishing, but personally speaking, my lower threshold is in the 35-40 degree range. Cleaning guides and breaking ice every-other-cast just isn't my idea of fun!

i actually moved this fish down a couple of holes. By the time that i got him to shore cause the water was up we were down a ways. I hope this guys makes it through all of the people that keep fish from there. he didn't get that big being stupid. what are some other good areas to fly fish in this area. i grew up in weikert on penns creek and that is all i know i just want to fish something close to that in the lancaster area to flyfish. Thanks for all the comments i am glad i found this site!

That would make sense. The last I knew he was upstream a bit on the other side of the Clay Road bridge, but south of the sewer treatment plant discharge...

As far as where to fish in Lancaster County, a good start would be here. Also check the "Stream Reports" section and you'll find reports of local streams. There is a lot of information contained within this site.
