Man, I always forget this fact... I can never truly outrun my legacies.

I'm not looking forward to voluntarily waking up this early, but I can't wait to see some of you out there.

Goodfortune,

Al's trico's in sz 24 will be perfect. I have actually been using them in sz 22 and catching fish without any problem, but I think the smaller the better. I just have a tough time with the hackle on those tiny hooks.

Good to see you are making the long trip out east for this. I am not sure if you remember me, but I met you in Erie last year at the Steelhead jam. We ate dinner together on Sunday night I believe. Anyway, I will most likely be there and will probably see you then.

Rob

Got the green light from my better half. Haven't decided for sure so I MAY be there. Not easy to get up at 4 a.m. We'll see.

Don't MAKE us come up there! We have visitation rights.

If the timing holds true, the bugs should hit the water heaviest around 9AM. Being a bit late shouldn't be a problem. By 10AM, there's still rising fish, but not like earlier. Last weekend had the water a bit off color, and it was easier to fish. You could see the fish just below the surface, munching away. Good stuff.

goodfortune - since it's still early in the hatch, you can get away with 22's with no problem. Casting accuracy is the ticket. There's a ton of fish in there - I'm always amazed with how they come from out of nowhere for a good hatch. If you'd like, I'll take you to a really cool stream for an evening hatch. Have some sulphurs (sz 18) and rusty spinners if you'd like to go. Great options for dinner there as well, especially if you don't have to make the trek home on Sunday night. This invitation applies to anyone else, too.

I am trying to get the green light from the better half but it shouldn't be a problem. Might be nymphing though as I have never fished a trico hatch.

HA- Fished the section we will be fishing tomarrow today, Tricos everywhere! The fish were popping but not real good. They started popping around 830ish and then suddenly stopped. Also, are you talking about hitting the PO in the afternoon? I live in Bowmanstown so I think i could hit the evening hatch with you guys if thats where you plan on going.

Oh, well......Happy Independence Day, my friend.

Mr. Becker - We'll make plans tomorrow. I'm trying to provide more of a chance to fish the area for goodfortune - it's a mighty long drive for him, for just a couple hours of fishing.

Your guess was accurate, BTW.The hard part is deciding between Riverwalck and Platz's.

Ha- Yes a very hard decision between Platz's and RiverWalks. Depends on if your a BBQ man or more of a normal restaurant food person. Also, the Atmosphere is best towards dark at Riverwalks. Look forward to learning a thing or two from you guys. C ya all tomorrow.

That's a bummer, although this means next time you come down (or we go up), there's a longer day planned I hope... I'm going to have to leave after watching people eat lunch to go and try out some fatherhood thing.

Its 2am, I have to be up at what time? Sigh. I don't understand the appeal of this hatch. Its stupid tiny insects, stupid early in the morning, and unless its so easy that the fish are taking numbers to hook themselves, I believe tomorrow is it for my yearly trico experience.

On the other hand, the weather looks clear...beats last year's two attempts.

Wish I could pick up for the afternoon Pogoloco session, but tis not to be.

Nice seeing everyone again, and some new faces. Great weather, some big clouds of flies and plenty of risers.

Hope it was tightlines for all, I know on the way out I saw Square with one on and a couple of rapt dogs.
