Penns Creek, Union Co, 4/9/13

First outing of the year. Fished the lower C&R section all afternoon. I got there late, about 1pm. According to other anglers I talked to, fishing had slowed down after the morning. Swung little wets (black&badger soft hackle, tan beadhead sh, beadhead black nymph). I had two fish on, one quite sizable. Both shook off. Probably shouldn't have played the second one by hand. Dumbstruck, as usual. Hookset-to-take ratio 100%! That's the real news, to my point of view.

It's a little early on Penn's. Bare trees, water flowing clear and strong. Lots of little black stoneflies out, mostly crawling on the trees by the time I got there. But I only saw a few grannoms and medium-size grayish mayflies, no more than two in the air at any one time. No rises, just an occasional chaser, slashing across the surface.

Nice report, thinking of heading out to Penns on Saturday and doing a little exploring. Ive only fished near Coburn before but plan on checking out the park more.

Its going to be blown out satuday, i'd wait a bit, check out the feathered hook website or TCO and wait til it clears up. I don't have a lot of experience on penns but i have heard many times that it clears slowly
