Report's from last weekend, but better late than never.

Ideally I would have much rather been at the Jam, but I had prior commitments Saturday that I had to be at. I couldn't let a weekend go by without doing any fishing though so I decided to hit Neshannock both days for a little bit(as well as another spot or two on the way home).

I fished it in the DHALO around 2 or so on Saturday in the heat of the day. Got sun burned pretty bad, but I caught a handful of fish so it wasn't all bad. I saw a good bunch of BIG carp swimming around but couldn't get them to hit anything. Had one trout rise up to a dry(missed him on the hook set), but all the trout I caught(5 or 6 I think) were either on small nymphs or stripping streamers aggressively. Also saw a little pike just hanging out in the shallows but he wouldn't hit a thing. The highlight of the day was a brown around 17-18in. Holdover??

Sunday I fished it a little big around lunch time closer to New Castle in the open regs water. Caught one little bass here and caught another 5 or 6 trout on nymphs(14-16ish) and stripping streamers.

Creek was low and clear and it was sunny out, but I think I did pretty good for the conditions.

There were a couple in the dhalo and none in the section I fished in the open regs water. Crowds definitely manageable.

Yeah. Even though I'm like 40min away I consider it one of my home streams. Want to explore it more for bass this year.

I'm leaning towards holdover too. One shows up once in a while there.

Just got done fishing it bout a half an hour ago. Got 2 on caddis but that was it. Drakes were thick but not many rising. I might have left too early, but I forgot to bring a flashlight lol.

Thousands of bugs! Usually lasts 3-5 days and I think yesterday was day 2 so if you're going you should do it soon. I won't say how late I stayed but most action was after it was dark. Every trout was rising for a solid hour when the spinners hit.

It looks like the cahills started a bit earlier this year. Typically they are emerging before the brown drake spinnerfall and this year the cahill spinners were active and laying eggs before the brown drake spinners. Not sure the species, but the spinners were pure white and about a size 14. The fish were keyed into them for about 15 minutes before the brown drake spinners hit the water. You just had to guess when the switch happened. I used a white fly spent wing and it worked just fine.

Get out there tonight and rip some lip!

I'll add a few pictures later.

It was one of the better spinnerfalls I've seen there. I was at the top end of the pool behind the shop and probably had 20 fish rising in front of me.

I was thinking of heading up there tonight but it didn't work out. Post how you do! I guess I'll have to wait till next year for the drakes.

Ryan, what time did you get there last night?
