I hiked/fished up the stretch from the Luzerne co airport to the 8th st bridge and back no sign of the nasty little buggers. I'm going with August 1st. But if they are timed by the moon phase them Saturday will be the night.

I like that stretch. Specifically, how did you do behind the bonton?
CPR unless its a tasty walleye!!!

I met up with Joe Ackourey tonight, he's convinced the white flies will be here soon, this weekend maybe even.  You guys keep a look out on Sat. night.
hd is the shop stiill open in luzerne. guys told me they closed down.i remember the one yr i was out with the lanterns and the full blown hatch happened. there were thousands of them piled up under my lanterns. you could smell em burnin on the globes.it took me a while to clean them lanterns up. blizzards not even the word to describe it.

I was up at the Bon Ton access on Monday, there's a new post preventing any vehicles from driving up over the bank, it's hike in now.  Don't know what happened.  It was a popular canoe and kayak access  too.

zziipp Ackourey's Fly Shop is closed, has been for awhile.  Joe still guides and ties and sells flies.

You talking about the access road up and over the dike? I drove in there yesterday, not a problem.

 :o   There is a paved road from the parking lot that goes up over the dike.  There were 2 posts on each side of the road, on Monday there was a 3rd post right in the middle.   Is there another way to get over the dike or does that middle post come out?   Are we talking about the same place, just past Bon Ton?

Same place no middle post yesterday. I never saw it in. I know it is there to keep people out when the river is too high to go back there safely but It has to be really high before they put it in.

That's odd, but good news,  maybe the outfitters have a way to contact the proper people and have it removed.  Joe Ackourey told me the same thing, his buddy went up there and couldn't drive back.  I never thought to see if the post came out but probably wouldn't have removed it anyway.   

If you come back out and the post is there hopefully you can muscle it out, lol, or be stuck for the night.

Seems like the hatch is moving pretty slowly this year. These cold nights this week are not going to pick up the tempo either. No matter what the hatch is guaranteed to arrive here next week while I'm in VA. Try to save a couple nights for me if you can.

There was a great hatch last night in the Bloomsburg area.  I had been seeing just a few the last 3 nights, but last night it was a blizzard.  We fished top water during the hatch and did well.  All age classes of fish which is great.
