Lititz Run, Lancaster County, 3/27/09

I fished Lititz Run on Friday afternoon. Air temps were in the 60s. Water was low and clear. I caught three rainbows: one about 19-20", one about 12", and a 10" rainbow that appeared to be wild. I have caught wild rainbows at Lititz Run before, but this was the largest. I only saw two fish rising; however, there was a steady flow of tan caddis (~size 14) coming off all afternoon. I also saw tons of midges and a few BWO. I fished the upper section of the C&R, but I would imagine that fish were rising down by the concrete bridge. Great day to be out, but the ram chased me across the stream for the first time ever.

Sal, send me a PM as to where to go on Lititz and I'll go this week with my mono. If I don't need fluoro on Valley I don't need it anywhere. . By the way this is just good clean fun! We already debated this subject.

I used a fluoro leader and tippet set up. I only picked up fish sub-surface.

So then you really can't say it is harder then valley. Because you obviously really don't have a clue. Just like I don't know what Lititz is like. But what I can say about Valley is guys fishing twice as long as us say it's one of the toughest streams in the state.

ok true. but those fish want real food. On lititz they dont. and you cant fish bait so they are real tough to catch. Ive heard people here say that Lititz fish are as hard as Letort fish. That i do have a clue on. Just let us know how ya do.

Ya i hear ya but the big fish are about 10 years old or more and are accustomed to eating them. Ive used pellet flys with some success. But when nothing is hatching, which is often on Lititz Run, but that is slowly changing thank god, they dont want anything else. I wish they would stop feeding the fish and let nature run its course. Ask squaretail about the trip we took. He will tell ya those damn fish just want fake food
