How about an idea of what to bring...

Weight & length of rod?
Waders?
Flies?
PA fishing license?
etc...

67 and cloudy forecast at this point... water proof jacket?

Well, that depends if you want to fish afterwards. We'll be on special regs waters in the afternoon, so you can certainly fish if you want to. Bring your gear!

Honestly, any trout rod will work there. My usual choice is an 8 1/2' 5 wt.

Rods for the casting instruction will be provided, but if you want to use your own, feel free.

As for flies - I fished there last Saturday. Saw midges, BWO's, small tan caddis, and yellow cranefllies on the surface. If you have the subsurface immitations of them as well, you should be set. I'd also add scuds, cressbugs, sucker spawn, and woolly buggers. Terrestrials are also out and about.

Oh yeah - it's always a good idea to have a waterproof jacket at any PAFF event.

Yep. For morning, hopefully it'll be a combination of inside and out. But really, you don't have to bring anything but yourself for that. If you wish to bring a rod for casting practice, feel free, set it up flyless for typical lawn casting. If not, there will be some rods available, but it'll probably be a take turns type of situation.

We cannot fish at the location itself, its outside of the special reg zone I believe, so no lines on the water, and that kind of defeats the purpose of wading anyway, so no waders necessary.

For the afternoon, there will be groups splitting off to go fishing. If you want to join, bring the fishing gear, including waders. I defer to Ed on flies.

It's only a couple hundred yards away - as the crow flies.

Actual driving time, about 5 minutes.

We'll just have to make plans to get out and fish again.

Just checked the weather forecast for Emmaus for this Saturday - High of 56, 70% chance of rain. While that is still a couple days out and leaves some room for change, I'm assuming that this is a rain or shine event?

I'd guess so for the morning classes and whatnot, and as far as fishing - the two best times for fishing? Is whun it's rainin', an whun it ain't!

Accuweather says a high of 65, and a chance of showers. There isn't even any amount of precipitation predicted.

National Weather Service says showers likely, mainly in the afternoon.

Bring a rain jacket - this is a PAFF event, after all.
