]first time posting..... Fished Valley Creek today from the falls up well into little Valley.....Water was very low and clear got out on the water by 7 am but didn't land my first brownie till 11:15am after that seemed like green weenies were the go to ( after trying numerous nymph patterns under an indicator) fished till 4:30 pm after landing 4 nicely colored brownies (nothing over 10 inches). wind at times made casting difficult....idk what else more to say like I said first time posting all together and from what I've read so far you guys shouldn't have too much trouble critiquing this report....looking for advice for what i should include in future posting of stream reports since I fish many of the S.E Delco streams and rivers.

Tube,
You'll note that, when writing a report in this particular forum, we ask that you include the date and county in the title line as can be seen in the other reports below. It's not a big deal, I had to have it explained to me when I wrote my first report too (it helps with search function).
I added the county - when did you fish?
With regards to what info you should include in a report: just some basic information that can include weather/water conditions, hatches seen (or not seen), maybe what flies produced or some other basic information that would be of use to someone planning to visit that waterway. You don't have to be overly specific and describe exactly where you fished or exactly what fly worked - just general stuff. You can decide how specific you care to be.
Keep in mind that reports that describe poor or slow fishing are welcome and can be just as useful as reports where many fish were caught.
Thanks,
Dave

Thanks Dave, Fished 10/25/13, Valley Forge PA....not much more than the occasional trout sucking down what i thought to be an occasional BWO or midget pattern but i wasn't able to connect with anything on the dries...Weather this morning was brisk in the upper 30's to low 40's by noon fish activity increased as well as the temperature. Often i found my self fishing on my knees to keep from spooking the fish, patience was the name of the game today. I first heard about this site in late Sept. from a guy on valley who told me to check it out... I'm no expert but from what I've been told and experienced as far as valley creek goes if nothing else seems to work go to the weenie!

Fished here on 10/27 from about 9am till 12pm with a buddy of mine. I tried every combo of stim/nymph and hopper/dropper to not success. I had alot of action on a white streamer but need to go back with smaller hook sizes. Fish were small and short hitting the back of the streamer. Tried trimming up the tails but still did not help.

i fished valley creek last thursday (10-24-13) and did very well. a piece of advise, fish very very light patterns. do not drag bottom with the nymphs, and do not wade. i dont fish over a size 18 there, and almost no weight (minus a 2.0 tungsten bead anchor and a brass beaded dropper). but the indicator isnt helping you out either. the creek is very low, so if you cant cast above the spot you want to fish, you are more than likely spooking them before your flies get to the fish

Find feeding or rising fish and cast. They are likely eating midges. I don't spend a lot of time with search patterns at this time of the year since it is getting colder and the fish become less active. During the warmest part of the day you can typically find risers and those are the fish that are willing to play. Like the others have said light tippets and flies are essential.

Hi everyone,
Fished Valley Creek yesterday, it was cold, water was low, but the fish were rising! Mostly between 10 AM and noon. Never found what they were eating, but they were taking BWOs off the top, and zebra midges dropped about a foot off a parachute Adams. Never got any action on the Adams.
All were between six and 12 inches. Look very healthy as usual.

There are not many deep holes above the park, where do you guys think the big ones go when the water is low?

Fished VC yesterday. Water was higher then normal with the snow melt, still great clarity, and a much better flow.

Fish were hungry. Caught 3 fish in the 7-10 inch range, and a bunch of small 3-4 inch fish. All on Nymphs.

Spoke to others who were catching them up to on midges.

Fished VC yesterday (12/28/13). Had some luck with a #20 BWO.

I also found an empty worm container immediately above the TP bridge. Looks like it came from Woolford Sales in West Chester... the label reads "12 Canadian Nitecrawlers."

As far as I know Spin fishing is allowed on Valley Creek. Slob left his worm container which is common with spin fishermen unfortunately.
