State College Rendezvous

After a long weekend at the Fly Fishing Show in Lancaster, I couldn't think of a better way to relax and enjoy the weather than getting up at 6am to meet up with Lenny and Jared. With promising weather and a weekend of talking fly fishing, the 3 of us decided to head west, meeting up with Brian from TCO State College. We decided that Penn's Creek would be our best choice of location.

There were plenty of bugs flying around--Blue Wing Olives, and midges for the most part. However with winter water and air temps here, nymphing was still the best bet.

We spent all morning on Penn's with decent action, but decided to jump in the car around 2 and head to Spring Creek for the remainder of the day. Jared had his fingers crossed the whole way, hoping for some rising fish. Getting there at "Prime" time, the fishing pressure was high. The fishing was slow, but Jared's wishing came true.
