(Guess I could have posted this on the South forum but it prolly would have died of loneliness)



Had to deliver a Care package to the youngest and parlayed a stop at the local spring creek into the supply drop.

Pretty countryside:

Blah, blah, blah:

Got stonewalled here:

Streamside meal? Not unless I want to fill my waders from the inside:

Weather was supposed to be cloudy and in the 40's; I got sunshine, wind and low 30's; fish didn't seem to mind.

3 hours fishing, ended up with 4 in the boat and a couple refusals. Nothing spectacular but 1st fish of the year (softhackles rule!):

The child was happy to see me (actually he was happy I brought his climbing shoes and leftover meatloaf and baked beans). Don't ask about the sweatshirt; I don't get the cat thing at all:

    Great report, till last shot.

    Thanks, I really liked that. Reminds me of home but for some reason our season is closed. Six weeks...

    Cool photos Scott, it's been several years since I've fished that stream.

    Greener days, waiting on the hatch.

    We're planning a trip out east this fall. Do you have any sites or links about fishing the Yellow Breeches?

    Try here:

    Yellow Breeches Outfitters changed ownership back in the fall; don't know if it's opened up, but if so you could contact them. I've only fished it a couple times and it was a zoo; much preferred Falling Springs, although since the Skelly Farm section was closed to the public it's lost a lot of it's appeal, too.

    Don't know what your plans are, but if you've never been to Gettysburg, it'd be worth the time.

    Thanks for the lead. I really want to fish the Yellow Breeches because of family history with the watershed. We're probably going to be in the area around the 24th of September in celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary. Our 25th was celebrated in Manchester VT... **** I got a keeper here.... She even tolerates a week in May every year on the Ausable... but I gave her a Pearl necklace our first year there... Maybe she's thinking there is something else in her future...

    Congrats on that (got one myself) and your anniversary. Should be beautiful up there in late September.

    The Allenberry stretch has the best fishing, but there also is some good fishing out of the special regulations area, both up and downstream, and by September the bait guys have mostly stopped fishing.

    I have sent you a couple of not-for-publication suggestions via IM.

    BTW - YB Outfitters is restocking under new ownership and should do well. It is the last remaining fly shop in the area.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.
