See your last post proves my above statement. The whole LL consists of more than just the Heritage section FYI.

When did I ever mention the Heritage section?


Have you been to the Saucon lately or the Bushkill?

Yeah and they were both 72 degrees. Didn't even wet a line. Had to return to the LL for colder water. Did you fish them?

Do you guys get cool finishing moves when you finally win 2 of 3? Who's playing the part of the guy that says FINISH HIM?

Alpabuck,
If the majority of fish in a stream are stacked in 60 degree water at a "Thermo," I don't think it is real sporting to fish them out of that refuge point. But that is just me speaking.

Fishidiot,
I enjoyed the stream report aspect of this thread, but I am affraid that the troll is growing.

I think he meant he used two thermometers, but one can never know with alpa.

JayL,
Yeah...I think you are right. That is my fault on the misread. I think sundrunk said it best a while back "there goes my trigger finger again."

i nymph all the time with 8x its not real abrasion resistant but it works good , the fish can't see your line in the fast runs when u use it either and if u want to switch to size 32 midges its a breeze

Exactly.

I fish the LLH about 3-4 times per year (not a lot). This past Sunday I caught 7 in about an hour and a half using 6x, on Al's Rats, crane flies and sunken ants. This was 4 - 5:30 PM, sunny and hot with one eye on my 10 year old son and the other on my buddy's kid. Not exactly ideal conditions.

If someone is not catching in the Heritage stretch and they're using 6x (or at the smallest 7x), tippet is not the problem.

Just sayin'...

Consider other variables: observation, approach, presentation, and tippet length.

An observant angler fishing the LLH (or anywhere the trout are visible) can deduce what the fish are feeding on, at least with some degree of accuracy. That is an advantage of sight fishing so use it when you can.

Wear subdued colors or camo. Every time I go there I see guys standing right over top of the fish they are trying to catch. I noticed the trout in the LLH Heritage section to not stop feeding when someone approached, but they do get more selective.

Present the fly drag free. If that doesn't work try twitching it to get a response. Each trout may prefer a different fly and/or presentation. Be flexible. In the past, I've caught some nice rainbows by twitching sucker spawn UPSTREAM!

The tippet length should be 3 feet plus. This is to prevent drag and allow for more natural movement. On general longer tippet is softer.

This stuff is all second nature to most of us, but inexperienced anglers must think of these things constantly until they become ingrained. It doesn't hurt to review them periodically.

Why do you have to judge, if an insect wants to live its life in such a manner, its not your call.

Oh, wait.

Flies...right.
