Just moved to the area from NC to finish grad school at University of Delaware, sorry for adding another fisherman to your already "crowded" SE PA waters :)
Went to Valley for the first time, fished the upper section hoping for less pressured fish. Water was clear and I assume low looking at the gauges (didn't take a stream temp).
Didn't see any hatches or rises from 6:45am till noon. Targeted the pools with a 20 baetis nymph, and used a 16 elk hair caddis for an indicator. Brought 6 to hand on the caddis, go figure, nothing on the nymph. Switched to an 18 ant later in the day and quick released a few more. Very beautiful fish in this stream.
Had a blast, thoroughly enjoying lurking on "y'all's" message board.

mp - welcome. WTG on a pretty tough stream. What are you studying?

NC's Smokies is where I learned to trout. I remember those wonderful streams fondly.

Thanks for the welcome.
Lestrout: I am finishing up (hopefully) my Master's in Energy and Environmental Policy, specifically with a focus on the intersections of water and energy policy.
Trout are actually relatively new to me, I've lived in coastal NC for the last 10 or so years, so I am more familiar with red drum, speckled trout and bluefish. Can't wait to explore more of the wild trout streams though.
Pete: I'm getting too old to hang with most of the kids on Main Street. Deer Park until about 10pm or so is just my speed.

I too did my grad work at UD, historic preservation. Went to Valley this morning and didn't land a thing. Saw lots of fish that I spooked though so I know where to look next time. Made me realize how out of practice I am as far as stealth, presentation and the more technical aspects that it seems to take on a stream like Valley. Ran into a couple of guys on my way out that gave me some good advice, always nice to get a few tips from the regulars. Nice fish mp, those pics make me wanna go back there until I can land a few.
