Fishing Report - Tulpehocken Creek

This week has been very productive thus far. Caddis are all over the water from first light till dark, Sulphurs have been hatching every night around 4pm. We have also been Tricos just about every morning for the past week or so. I have not seen fish keyed in on Tricos just yet, however there were a significant number of spinners on the water this morning. I would have a few spinners in your boxes, in anticipation for the first good spinner fall that should happen very soon.

Row 1: Elk Hair Caddis, CDC Caddis, Z Wing Caddis 
Row 2: CDC Hackle Sulphur, CDC No Thorax Sulphur, Transitional Sulphur Emgerger
Row 3: CDC Trico Dun, Drowned Trico Spinner, CDC Trico Emerger

Male Trico Spinner from this morning

Aside from the Tully, I have been spending a bit of time over on the Manatawny. This is a great little stream for bug life, awesome looking water, and a few more wild fish. The Manatawny has a great Sulphur hatch, among others like Hendricksons, and Caddis. Yesterday morning I was fishing, when I started to see Sulphurs falling to the water. I had great fun for about an hour before I had to go to work. Here is one I got yesterday.


  1. despite all the caddis action sunday morning, tricos were the ticket.

  2. Good deal. Hoping for some sulphur action tonight. Thanks for the report!
