Yough river, Fayette County, 8/22/10

Was on the river above Ohiopyle by 7 and glad I was the action was fast and short in duration. I caught about 20 dinks, all under 8 inches, but it was nice to see my friend catch his first couple fly rod trout. Most were wild, I think, with only a few stockies. Dinks aside, I caught 6 more trout between 12 and 15 inches. All fish were caught on a size 12 yellow stimmy and a size 14 tan caddis emerger. All in all it was a great day on the water and it was special to see my friend enjoy the fly fishing as much as did. Btw I just bought the Patagonia sticky rubber river walking wading boots and I must say it was worth all 160 dollars, I stuck to those rocks like glue.

I'm thinking the dinks you got into may have been stocked fingerlings. Particularly in that area. But who knows...still sounds like a good day on what can be a tough piece of water.

It's a surprise there aren't more wild bow streams around the Yough aside from the few that exist. I know Meadow is loaded with those finglerlings by October...

I'm ready for some returning browns at the mouths.

Sure, we can assiduously three-quarter our wets down stream, mend, and wait out each fly swing, which to my way of thinking, anyway, relegates to the angler to role of butler, rather than nemesis.

Now, you've gone and done it. Great!

Ha! It's all an angling myth anyway. A few straggling browns at the mouth of a crick is far from a fall "run" of monster piscivorous fish that one imagines. I've been chasing this mysterious migration for decades across various parts of the state. I've come to the conclusion that -- outside of the great lakes tribs -- it doesn't really exist in any tangible sense.
