SE PA after 4" to 6"

Postby Emerson » Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:32 pm

Went out for a few hours today..it got just above freezing for a bit. I went to the Brandywine. The water was about 38 degrees..MFC! My feet were getting cold. The fish are really not active at all! This is a freestone stream....mostly fed by run off and some springs.

This guy ate a San Juan worm even though we are 2000 miles from the San Juan. Funny thing was that last year I was watching a stream biologist seine a local stream and there were worms looking just like this baby!

Another guy fishing downstream. He was using a hare's ear nymph...also he was must have been a bit nuts..perhaps that is what he told his friends ha ha

Just a picture of some berries on the branch. Thought it was a nice shot but....it reminds me of the brownie camera days. You know...take a picture of a deer that is 2 miles away and when it come back..it looks like a spot! :lol:

This guy ate a pink San Juan.............. with his pecs ha ha ha

Had another one tail wrapped but he fell off before I could take the pic. Just trying to keep up the snag ratio!


Went to West Valley...by now it was about 4:30 and below freezing.

My old Fenwick glass rod....still works just fine!


The water was about 10 degrees warmer here due to this stream being spring fed...actually pleasant due to being spring fed!

Nice goin', Emerson !!

Someday they'll put up a monument to you on one of those streams.

At the base, it will read:

From Bluegills to Billfish
He did it all on fly tackle
... and then dropped trou.

Wait so your not supposed to go trout fishing when the water temp is in the 30s? Man I have been doing it wrong all these years.

Looked like a nice day to be on the water.
