I liked the mention of the Loyalsock. I hiked that area one weekend when I was in high school wilderness club. we camped out and followed the 'sock trail to angel falls and it was beautiful but I didn't fish back then. might be worth a trip this year, even if its just for memories sake.

Definitely head up to the loyalsock. It's a beautiful stream with crystal clear water. If it had wild trout it would be without a doubt my favorite stream in the state. If you go fish any trib you come across, chances are it will hold wild/natives.

This is another case where they're trying to cover all the zones of the state, not the best hatches.
To be honest, of all the fishing rags at my work, that ones probably my least favorite.

not really for trout, but if you ever witnessed the white mayfly hatch on the Susqy river, you have seen one of the greatest, most intense insect hatches in any of our state waters.

I know there are some Yough regulars on here. Is there a good Green Drake hatch on there, as the article says?

Yea, the D not mentioned, strange.

I have not hit the drakes on the Yough. My impression is that it could be good for a short time in particulat sections. I have never been impressed with the hatches on the Yough. The tan caddis hatch is okay there. Maybe the youghriverguide could shed some light on that one.

I agree that the green drake hatch on penns, and sulphers on the little j should not be missed.
But IMO, the ultimate hatch matching experience in PA would be the Hendricksons on the Big D. Which, unfortunately, is/was a total wash out this year.

I've fished caddis on oil creek - and it's OK. But I think the sulpher hatch provides better fishing there.

As for the yough, I've never fished it before mid June. Because it usually runs at a high flow rate in spring. And I've always been busy chasing the hatches in central PA then. But maybe I should check out that green drake hatch there.....

I agree with DFG and both points: spectacular hatch and a washout this season. I try to hit the D every season for the hendrickson hatch, but this year was a no-go!

I can't believe they left out the Hendricksons on Upper Pine but it's ok that they left it out. It is better than the hatch on the Big D.

Sounds a little messy.

Pine Creek certainly does have a great hendrickson and, - usually at the same time - blue quill hatch.
But I still catch larger fish on the Big D
