Lititz Run, Lancaster County, Lower Meadow, 09/28/2009

Fished Lititz Run for an hour on Monday evening. Began at the big pool below the stone bridge on the Thompson farm. Fish were rising sporadically to what appeared to be midges, but I only picked up one fish (a sunny that most of the browns in there would inhale) on a sz. 20 Griffith's gnat.

Switched to tandem nymph rig with a sz 18 olive bead head GRHE and brown SJW. Picked up a beautiful 6" rainbow that appeared to be wild. As it got darker, I switched to a sz 8 black slump buster and started pounding the banks. Hooked into and lost one nice brown in the riffle by the willow trees before I had to pack it in and head for home.

Stream was in fantastic shape. Lots of water with a bit of a tint to it, which made approaching the fish a little easier.

Man I gotta hit Lititz again... I only know how to get to two places to fish. The TU section near the preztel store and below that cow pasture on the other bank from where TU built the structure. Can anyone else give me a spot or two on the map?

I grew within a half mile of Lititz Run and I must say that I enjoy fishing NC PA much more than Lititz Run. Look at a map of Lititz Run and find Creek Road near the mouth. The section of creek Road between Millport Road and Oregon Road (PA722) is the section that you want to fish. Above that is permit only fishing, and additionally there is a small section of open water near town that gets a lot of bait fisherman pressure but has been known to hold wild rainbows in the past. I would stick to the section along northern Creek Road if you are driving a significant distance to fish.

What did you catch it on? Floating Duck pattern? Amazing fish for a stream that size!

If you look thru the photo section you might see him. Or search the stream reports for lititz run and maybe a pic of him there.

If you're saying this fish was caught in the Riparian Park, then no, I'm sure this is not the same hog Sal and Spector have caught. That fish was further down in the C & R area. If this guy was in the Riparian Park, it is hard to believe that he got that big being that it is stocked and is hit hard in the spring as a "put and take" section.

crs4592 saw a big hog like this cruising those waters a few months back when we were fishing it...

How are you getting a mount done if you put the fish back?
