Fished a cold section of the Breeches (Not Allenberry) this morning from 6:00-11:00. Water temp didn't top 63. Trikes coming off, but fish really weren't moving on them. Ended up with 10 on hoppers and nymphs. Great morning!

I had a good morning there also but you needed sharp elbows in order to have a place to fish. There were so many fishermen you had to stay in the spot you started in.

Pap-paw,
I've been there before...hate it...won't do it again. If I see another angler when I'm out it's too crowded for me (unless I'm fishing with other people of course). Part of what I enjoy about the sport is getting out and enjoying the solitude of nature, and not having to worry about giving the hairy eyeball to a schmuck trying to take "my" hole. Especially on the Breeches, there are lots of great spots that rarely get fished after April, and stay cool enough most of the time. They also have wild fish, not pellet heads. Plus you won't get in any fights (most of the time!)

Nice fish, #5 is a bruiser. I gotta get out that way sometime and fish that area.

Is it always elbow to elbow fishing?

flythrower - yeah, that fish was a blast, especially on a 3 wt! It was probably in the 15-16" range.

Sasquatch - I've fished this particular section of the Breeches probably 6 or 7 times in the past 2 years, and have seen a grand total of ZERO other anglers while I've been out. A lot of out-of-towners fish this stream, and they usually stick to the famous areas. If you hit those spots, you very well may be tripping over other people, especially during hatch times. So if you're going to visit, I'd suggest exploring a little bit, just keep a thermometer handy if it's blazing like it has been recently.

Great post. This stream always sounded appealing until you hear about the crowds. Maybe I can make it out there afterall...

Thanks. I've never been there so I don't know which spots are "famous" and which spots aren't. Usually if I see dudes fishing, I assume its an over fished "hot spot" and look for better water. I'm assuming I shoudl just avoid the C&R section all together?

I am glad that you did not post the exact location like some others feel so compelled to do on this board, especially on the Breeches.
I enjoyed your pictures and share your sentiments totally.
Identifying the location and posting numbers always leads to a deterioration in the overall fishing experience for those who follow or frequent a particular section of stream , e.g. Big Spring.

Hopefully, you may continue to enjoy your solitude.You summed up it pretty well and I think that is what we enjoy the most about trout fishing short of catching fish.

Sasquatch - The advantage to the C&R area is that the water temp stays cool because of the run coming out of the lake in boiling springs, and it gets stocked like crazy (if you're into that). That being said, that area is by no means the only stretch of creek that holds good fishing.

albud - I, too, don't like to see exact locations broadcast - not only does it increase pressure, but I think part of the fun and "adventure" of the sport is putting in the time to discover. When you find a jewel on your own, it makes it much more special.

I feel like Yellow Breeches is one of those streams that if you live within 1-2 hours of it you should fish it if you have not yet. Great report.
