North Central Pennsylvania Fishing Report – July 19th, 2013

Spring Creek (Centre County) — Above-average, off-color flow was reported July 6, and water was in the 60s. Hatches included tan caddis (14-16) and midges (22-26). TCO Fly Shop was advising anglers to go under with caddis pupa in olive and tan (16-18), or fish Green Weenies, Cress Bugs, Pheasant Tails, Hare’s Ears and other standard egg patterns, nymphs and streamers.

Penns Creek (Mifflin County) — Water was dropping but still muddy and in the 60s as of July 6. In improving conditions, dry droppers with stimulator or other Stonefly patterns on top and nymphs below were recommended during the day, while spinner falls and caddish hatches in the evening typically make for good dry fly-fishing. Hatches included Comuta blue-winged olives (14-16), light cahills (12-14), slate drakes (12-14), tan caddis (14-16), yellow drakes (10-12), golden stoneflies (8-12), and orange craneflies (10-18).

Fishing Creek (Clinton County) — Water was a little above average, with some color and in the low 60s as of July 6. TCO Fly Shop reported that Tan Caddis, Light Cahills, Slate Drakes, Giant Stoneflies, Craneflies and midges were producing decent dry fly action. Streamer fishing was a good option in clearing, dropping flow. Hatches included black and cream midges (24), blue-winged olives (18-24), tan caddis (14-16), light cahills (12-14), craneflies (16-18), and slate drakes (12-14).
