Does any one know much about this stream, I fished it once about 9 years ago but it was a brief visit. I was hoping some one could pass some info on spring hatches, and maybe an area that is worth seeing. (upper, lower, or middle will suffice I don't expect any one to broadcast a favorite hole).
Thanks

Yes.

(Just not me.)

I'll let the people who know the stream speak up if they want to.

Jeff, I'll PM you some information. It's easily accessible as a road goes along it. Tough stream at times!

I'll give you a tip when the fishing gets tough there:

CheezWiz and tiny treblehooks.

Fished dry.
When I found the skull in the woods, the first thing I did was call the police. But then I got curious about it. I picked it up, and started wondering who this person was, and why he had deer horns. - Jack Handey

Jeff,
You wanna fish I'll hit the water there with you.

Some free advice to any and all who want it (call it kiss and tell if you like):
If she is running bank full break out the nymphs.
Consider her a small version of Penns and about a week behind bug wise.
Watch the skinny water as you might be surprised at what lives there.
Look outside the regs in the "non-blueribbon" water.
Watch out for buzzbirds they are might thick in those parts.

Good tips, John. I'll never fault you for general info. like this, even on a widely viewed board. Perhaps you, Jeff, and I should plan a trip in the coming weeks. It'd be great to fish with the both of you. --Louis

Hi guys
If you decide to do this after April, I would like to join you guys.

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Louis,
John D,
Jeff,
Name the time and place once mid april hits my wife becomes pretty lienient as long as the grass is cut and the garbage goes out to the curb.

I have to say that Penns and BFC are probably my two favorite PA streams on the grounds of setting. The fishing is often a bonus.
Good company can only enhance the outing.
