They feel a lot different on a fly rod, what weight rod are you using ?   The other night I made the switch over from fly rod to spinning rod after the insects subsided and it was a different world landing the smallies on the spinning rod.

I haven't been out since last Tuesday cuz I've been super busy working but I will be out this week.  Last time what I saw was light cahills out very early, gone by 7pm, and then the sulphurs came out right around dark. 

Are you staying out past dark ?   Nothing much was happening up here last week until dark and later.

I read a report on FlyFishPa that someone saw a bunch of spent white flies on the water Saturday morning.  I haven't been out myself since last Tuesday.

Unless we get another downpour I'll be checking the area near Apple Tree this evening, I am not optimistic because of the storms we've had and the rising water.

Accuweather says flash flood warnings in effect until 2am for Tunkhannock, it won't make the river un-fishable by any means but it might have an effect on the hatch.

You better hurry up HD! meshoppen gage is holding steady for now white flys have been out since the 30th. friend of mine hammered them into dark last thursday. 30 sum smallies and a bunch of big hungry fly guzzling cat fish all fell for his white fly imatation.. said NOBODY else was on the river where he was. The same guy is on the river now as I type not far from where u fish said the rain last couple days hasn't done nothing  to the river.  If I had a good limb I would run circles around ya.  :P lol Jk go get em!

I wish i can brother! Tough for me to do anything right now. My mother is not doing the greatest and she is my first priorty.  When I do get a chance to go I head up to the delaware the fishing is absolutely insane up there right now. Sulphurs, olives, light cahills, ISO's and big yellow drakes have ben coming off for over a month now. Go get em bro, were lucky to have it in our back yard. 8) uploading some pics now my buddy sent me.

White flies were out tonight in the Falls area, no blizzard but a decent hatch.  Nothing much around until near dark.  I caught a few nice ones, had one break me off at the tippet knot on a hook set, the line came shooting back at me.  It was pretty much over by 10pm. 





I saw a couple large fish in the shallows, on the way out I lit one up with my flashlight, it was long and slender, very long, it slowly made it's way out to deeper water.
