Fished approx 11am til 4pm. A bit after noon the bwo started, never a super heavy hatch, but a steady hatch that lasted several hours. The wind was blowing them around the water, the fish were sipping them off the top. Managed 5 to hand, hooked and lost another half dz, including one that broke my tippet when I tried to keep him from heading under a log jam. Missed too many to count. Action all tHe time. A great day on Spring.

Both the fishing and parking lots were crazy that day.

csoult and I fished it a day later (Saturday, the 30th). Bug situation sounds similar. But ours was a bluebird sunny day, not a cloud in the sky. Fish response was notably muted. A few rose in the shadows right along the edges, but not much was goin on. We both avoided the trout skunk, and added a few suckers. And of course it was a great day to be out. Beautiful weather, good company, and thus, fun. But the fishing wasn't that great.

Two great examples of the differences between a German and loch leven brown in those photos.

The fin coloration, shape are different as well as the spots.

Nice fishing.

We were also there on Good Friday. My ex-girlfriend and I had similar results. We started fishing around 10:30 upstream from the paradise. We nymphed for a couple hours with no results. We then began to see the rises and fished BWO's the rest of the day. I also missed a lot of fish, but brought seven to hand. My ex girlfriend kicked my butt this day. She caught 13. I don't think she missed any fish. It was a good day.

The day didn't start too good though. We were driving down the road (422 Berks County) and I noticed something coming from the passing lane into my lane. I thought it could be a box or something so I just ran it over. I couldn't really slow down or get into the other lane because there was traffic everywhere so I just ran it over. It stayed under my vehicle and I knew it was something solid. I couldn't pull over right away because there wasn't much of a shoulder. I finally was able to pull over and I found out what the culprit was.

It was a metal gas can that must have fell from some a-holes truck that forgot to strap it down. My ex said that she saw sparks coming out the back of the truck. The gas can was smoking, but I don't know if it was full or not. We got out of there in case it would blow up. Part of my bumper was off, but I was able to snap that back. The bumper is cracked. My check engine light came on, but it went back off on the drive home from Spring Creek. I called my insurance and put in a claim. They said my insurance could go up if the damage is over $1000. I find that to be ridiculous since it wasn't my fault. I'm just concerned about what could have been damaged underneath my truck. The bumper has a crack and i'm afriad that could just get worse. I guess the smart thing to do is to get it checked out.

Troy, I gotta ask: do you fish with your ex-girlfriend or did you break up since Friday?

Jack,
That is a good question. I guess I wasn't clear. We broke up in the fall. She dumped me because she wants more in life (kids and marriage). I live my life like I'm free and she wants the more traditional life. We were together for nine years so I don't blame her for kicking me to the curb. We have remained friends, but this was the first time we fished together since she broke it off. We did A LOT of fishing together so it was nice to do that again. It was a funny day becasue stuff like that happened to us all the time. We always had some kind of story to tell. We were with each other for about 15 minutes and then the gas can incident happened.

Nothing wrong with remaining friends. I never understood why "breakups" had to be ugly. I was just curious.
