Started the new first day of trout season at the Little Lehigh and fished until noon. Figured the crowds would be at the stocked streams and fortunately I was right. We saw one other fisherman. After about 10 minutes I caught a little 8" brown on a baetis nymph. Then nothing for about 2 hours. At my favorite spot on the stream I landed a 22"-23" rainbow on a #18 BHPT. My second one over 20" from the same spot this year. At first I thought it was the same one but it was much more spotted than the last one. I caught 2 more 10"-12" rainbows on BHPT and went to lunch.

In the afternoon we fished the West Branch. There was a decent BWO hatch which had fish rising steadily. My friend managed 6 out of the same hole. I missed several on drys and nymphs but in the end was skunked. I saw little stones, BWOs and some kind of larger mayfly probably a #12. If there are quills in the stream, it might have been one of those. Not sure but it was definitely not an olive. Saw one guy and his kids when we were leaving an that was it.

I'm thinking of trying the WB of the Perkiomen tomorrow. Never been there but have it marked on my map. I've about had it with the stocked streams and crowds already. Time to get back to what I love. Wild trout.
