As far as Brookie streams some of us won't need anyone to guide us, just point to a spot on a map that we can fish without the worry of being peppered with rocksalt! Then we can split up in smaller groups. I would be willing to take a less experianced person along with me if that would help to spread people out.


Thanks for the offer, we should do something like that. I got about a dozen little brookie streams I know within a half hours drive of the campground that I could put you on, and 6-12 more within that distance that I've never fished but I've been eyeing on maps and would feel somewhat confident in. A warning, though, in central PA these streams are thicker than in NW PA. The dreaded rhododendron. As a result casting is a LOT more difficult. Plenty of fish there, though.

However you do it, be sure to be on a bigger stream by dinnertime or so. Depending on weather, things can start rocking early on occasion.

Penns is like a woman you love - From hour to hour her mood changes. You go from an argument to giving her a back rub and then it is on. Then she tells you the faucet needs fixed.

not only "fishabls", but in good shape with hatches and spinner falls going strong and fish feeding! catch it right and you won't want to fish it any other way. yes, you can nymph on penns, and catch some big ones, but I don't drive out there to nymph fish.

Jack

Have you taken a early count on how many people so far? It looks like a good turn out again. I can't belive how this thing has grown.

Well my plans are worked out as well. Going to be getting up Thursday and hoping to maybe catch a steam in the morning early on the way up. I will be leaving on Saturday as my daughter is having her Senior Prom and have been given the "we will see you at 2:00" message.

Anyone around on Thursday I'll be at the campground then and hanging out with Jim and Ginger in the evening.

I have no idea on the count, but I suspect it will be somewhere between 60-70 unless the rain ruins the streams and some of the less committed bail out.

I was wondering if anyone has space available Thursday and Friday night? A cabin would be great but if not I can just pop my tent up. If someone would let me piggy back off their site that would be great!

W, I would be glad to sublet tent space by my cabin Friday night. If my buddy Shane doesn't feel any better by next week (wrecked a four wheeler and broke a bunch of bones) I may actually have some cabin space Friday and Saturday night. It's up in the air for now, but he said he should know by early next week. It's been a month or two, but he was pretty jacked up and isn't sure he's gonna be Penns capable, so I'll keep you posted.

It's still too far away to consider these to be accurate, but Accuweather does have it's long distance forecasts out to the 20th. Even if they don't get many details correct beyond 2 or 3 days, they're usually pretty good with the pattern out to 2 weeks. If so, it doesn't look good. Ridiculously bad, actually....

Accuweather's long term + amount of precip (day + night):

13th - rain. 0.68"
14th - rain. 0.48"
15th - only showers, oh goody. 0.09"
16th - rain. 0.69"
17th - rain. 0.07"
18th - rain. 0.26"
19th - rain. 0.17"
20th - rain. 0.27"

Here's the link, should update as time goes by so keep referring back, hopefully it begins to look different from the above...

Boyer, if this held true, I don't think any of us would be Penns capable.

I have followed the accuweather long term forecast pretty much daily since febuary. It's usually a big part of my fishing trip planning.

It's advised me to cancel every single time, and I didn't start taking the advice until the past few weeks. Every time, the forecast ended up being correct enough to predict poor conditions.

Needless to say, it's been a bad year for the traveling fisherman, at least from what I have seen.

All this rain is keeping the brookie streams cold, under 50... how cold is a daytime rain on recent days when the air might be 60 anyhow?

Not that cold. Doesn't matter beyond the initial runoff, ground is still cold. Look at the average temperatures recently (bout halfway between high and low). 55, 60 at best. Ground warms slower than the air. Ground temps (near surface) around 45-50ish right now, actually have been taking its temperature (for my garden, anyway). Stream temps will be similar.

Despite common misconception, most freestone water does come out of springs. They're just small, shallow springs, spread out over a large area.

on small streams with both rain and water temperature gauges , I see temperature falling with recent rains. For ex., see the pohopoco guage at kresgeville and may 4 rain...

I don't think the po is a good choice for this kind of analysis since it's a tailwater. It follows different temp trends.

Unless, of course, you're just looking to see what effect rain has on date y at x water temp.
