Was up on a college tour of Penn State with my daughter. Made it over to Spring Creek for a couple of hours with my son afterwards.

Conditions were awesome when we went out from 2-4. A cold front had just blown thru the night before. This afternoon was sunny and 60 degrees. Water was at normal color and height with temps about 56 degrees.

Sporadic caddis were coming off in the afternoon and a few small BWO mayflies. Worked on a couple of rises, but no luck with dries. Nymph fished the rest of the time and several strikes with a Walt's Worm.

Really a gorgeous day. My son was a little bored as not catching much so he took some pictures.

I left a PAFF Euro Sticker on the sign for the next angler in the lower parker lot next to the handicap spot.

Nice Dave - looks like a great day (hopefully she'll pick PSU and they'll be more great days ).

The thought never crossed my mind...well maybe a couple dozen times when I was on the stream.

Dave, as you may know my daughter attends PSU. She loves it even though I had to force her to go there against her will. I try to fish every time I go up for a visit. Glad to see you and your son getting out.

But men labor under a mistake. The better part of the man is soon plowed into the soil for compost. By a seeming fate, commonly called necessity, they are employed, as it says in an old book, laying up treasures which moth and rust will corrupt...

Shame you didnt run into Slay, Jay and I. My report photo essay is in the general forum. It was an awesome day! What time were you there?

After 12 and later in the day the rising was amazing!

Good to see your son and you get out. I cant wait to do all this stuff with my daughter.
