There are grannoms aplenty in the Bald Eagle, however by May 20th there are no grannoms on any of our central Pa streams. More likely Ryacophila (green rock worms)size 14/12, which can emerge throughout late April and May, or Hydropsyche,size 16/18 with a tan wing and a cinnamon body. The trout behavior you describe is common on the Little Juniata. In either case, fishing a pupa in the film is the way to go, especially for Hydropsyche. They spend hours struggling in the film before emerging.
