The Little J, Cold and Wet

Monday, the plan was to head up to the Delaware for the day, with the rain it was no surprise that we were detoured by a large water release. So on the whim we decided to head the other direction, State College.

Lenny, Jared and I were about 3/4 the way there when it started snowing (in April????!!!). But we had trout on the brain. We arrived at the Little J to no snow, but lots of rain and wind. The fishing was slow, but we all managed a few fish. Mostly on nymphs, with Jared getting one on a black streamer.

Towards the end, I noticed small sailboats on the water, yup Sulphurs! The water was muddy and rising slowly, this was just enough to keep the fish from coming up for them. So most of the sulphurs just floated down the river till they flew off the water, heading to the trees.

Here are some pics from the trip:
