Had a great week pinning, caught many trout every day. Am glad I moved to this area of PA! Lots of trout are eager to eat my baits. Limited out every day and have a couple dozen 12" - 18" browns in my freezer.

Glad for your success, Cdcaddis18, and welcome to the forum. Also, welcome to the area - I am also a transplant here from upstate NY. I would only suggest that you fill your freezer with smaller fish and leave the bigger ones to fight (and spawn) another day. A little digital camera would nicely preserve the memory of the larger ones without cluttering up your freezer. If the streams you fished are indeed well known, then the fish you caught had probably been caught and released many times by other anglers for the future enjoyment of others, in this case you. Try to be mindful that most streams here in Central PA are pretty heavily pressured, and that your fishing would likely not have been nearly as successful on this outing if every angler before you had limited out on big fish.

Pinning is a very deadly method to present natural bait or nymphs to trout. Skillful pinners can easily decimate fertile trout streams.

Westbranch, I hope you and Shawn can prevail on this guy to release his fish before they are all gone!
