Penns Creek Report

The Green Drake is over for the year and Sulphurs are dwindling, too, but fishing on Penn's Creek is far from over for the season. Slate Drakes, Cahills, Drunella, and Late season Blue Quills can all be seen on this water, with crane flies and caddisflies a bonus. Nymphing works all summer, using patterns to match the hatches, Perla stones, wet black ants, and Green Weenies.

The crucial limiting factor for summer angling on Penn's Creek is water temperature. During a warm, dry spring like this one, water temperatures can creep into danger levels for trout even in June. A thermometer is the most important piece of angling gear for Penn's Creek at this time of year. When the water on Penn's Creek nudges 68-70 F, give the fish a break and find some where else to fish.
