Penns Creek Report

I saw Penn's Creek near Coburn on Wednesday, 16 April, just after noon.  Considering all the rain over the last week, Penn's Creek was in good shape-slightly murky (about 20" of visibility) and full of water.  It looked ideal to fish large nymphs.  I saw no sign of Grannom caddis, despite reports that they had begun.  I would expect them any day and would have the matching patterns in my fly collection.  Until they do emerge, stone nymphs and large bead heads would be my choice.
