Penns Creek Report

 Penn's Creek has benefited greatly from recent precipitation and cooler weather.  From mid-August through the first week of September, we experienced the hottest weather of the entire summer.  Water temperatures even in the Coburn area were elevated beyond safe levels for fishing.  Those anglers truly concerned about the fish just left them alone.  With two all-day soakers in the last week and dramatically cooler weather now, Penn's Creek can once again be fished without fear of harming its trout.  Look for Slate Drakes, tan caddis, and a few Blue Quills for the short run.  As we get into October Baetis hatches on Penn's Creek can be productive.  Nymphs are always appropriate.
