Spring & Kettle 4/3/07
From Driftwood Branch Pa
Great day. Arrived at the Spring about 9:30. Was delighted to see trout sipping BWO spinners as soon as I got there. By the time I got rigged up, the spinner fall was waning but I did manage to pick up 2 nice fish and released them ala the long line method. Spent the next 2-3 hours BSing and watching others fish. There were 4 of us, and we all caught fish.
At noon, I spied a nice brown feeding on midges up close to a rock bank. Tied on a #22 Zebra Midge and took him on the first float. Nice 20 inch brownie that took me up, down, shallow and deep before he surrendered. Waited for a bit to allow things to settle down, and had another fish of about 14 inches begin feeding. Took him on the first float to. On that note, I decided to bide my friends farewell and headed to the Kettle.
At the Kettle, the fish at the lower end of the DH section had plenty of 2 legged company, so I went to the top end and picked up 3 more before darkness chased me home.
Looks like the weather will keep me in hibernation for the next few days. Looks like snow showers in the forecast until Sunday. Maybe I'll stand outside and let some of that cold snow cool down my sunburned noggin.
Hopefully Squaretail can add some pictures and a report from after my departure.
