Yellow Breeches Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Fishing nymphs, Czech, and w/ SrtikeIndicator and tungheads is going to be best bet. Streamers might take fish early and late in the day with white maribous and Shenk Minnow and black/olive Woolly buggers top choices. Watch for surface activity. Grannon Caddis in the morning and Hendricksons in the afternoon are likely suspects.
Crane flies anytime. Watch at dusk.

Nymphing will take the most fish. But watch for surface action too. Water is pretty clear and low for good streamer fishing.

Seven-day forecast 

Grannoms and Hendricksons have been hatching but it is still luck to hit a concentrated emergence. For caddis be on the water by 10 a.m. Hendricksons and their spinners could hit in the morning or mid afternoon. Water is very clear and hatches spotty. Fishing pressure is typically heavy. Try to find secluded areas. Bring a rain jacket; Weather Guy says scattered showers.
The Little Run in Boiling Springs has been receiving very heavy pressure and many of the fish stocked in there a couple of weeks ago are not in there now. It is hoped that they moved downstream but that remains to be determined. Anglers are starting to hit the main C&R area but fishing is just as good elsewhere. Just don't slip on the Power Bait!
Watch for poachers! Call (717) 486-7087 to report violators. Of course, office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday so hopefully the poachers only poach during those hours! If you are frustrated with the law enforcement situation in PA e-mail Executive Director John Arwary at jarway@pa.gov. If you see something not legal going on and don't make a call/take a pic. (or are you like, almost the only person in the country who doesn't have a cell phone?) then don't complain when the fish are gone.
