I bet in grassy meadow stretches of LJ, as rarer as they are, will produce strikes on hoppers.

Hoppers have never really produced for me on the J. I used to do really well on crickett patterns like Krayfish said

I have to agree with the general concensus of opinion on fishing hoppers in PA. I'm sure there are streams where they are effective, but most of the streams that I fished in PA had more woods than meadow. I did find that a Letort Cricket was often a good terrestrial pattern. The main problem with a cricket or an ant pattern for that matter is that it is hard to see. I can recall catching a couple of fish on a Letort Hopper, but it was never a big pattern for me.

When I moved to Wisconsin everything changed. Hoppers are a pretty big thing out here. I've found a lot more meadow type water and not so much forest. The stream banks are often overgrown with tall grasses and the stream bed often drops off right at the bank. The Letort Hopper and some Foam Hoppers are pretty much go-to flies for me during the Summer now.

was out on lower spring yesterday. It's in the best shape for august since i can remember.
fish were very active in the morning, but things slowed by 9:30. Fish were taking midges while I was there. While attractors took a good number of fish, the quality fish came on WD40s, zebras and small PTs. The morning was cool and damp so I had to leave before I expected the tricos to fall. Don't know if they did or not.
For the first time in 8 years fishing the CA-PA area a WCO came to check licenses. Very pleasant and nice guy. Kind of surprised me considering it was sunday AM, but I was glad to see him checking.

I fished Spring in the canyon on Saturday. The water was in good shape. I was hoping for some trico action in the AM but it never really seemed to materialize. I saw some fish rising but nothing consistent. Caught a couple on foam ants, but did the best by far with a cream midge underneath.

Fished spring last week. It is really fishing well this year. I did have Trico's but all my fish were caught underneath. It was a good day.

I fished spring on wed of last week, for an hour. We went to state college for the day for our anniversary and she let me fish while she got her hair done lol. It was early evening about 530, some tan caddis here or there. Landed one on a foam beetle, missed 2 more on ants. Great water for August, it fished like early june. Stay low and cast along the banks with dry beetles or ants if your looking for topwater action.

I actually live just north of Pittsburgh, so it can be a little haul to get out there. With that said, I try to fish the area as much as possible.
