29Mar08 - It had been a number of years since I had done this last, but I fished PA's opening day of trout.  I chose one of my favorite streams, Clark's Creek.  A size 16 olive Barr's Net Builder was a hot producer.  By 10:00, I had caught 6 (threw an 8" back) and lost 3 others.  If you got out to fish, I'm sure you'll agree.....it was cold, at least colder than I'd thought it would be!  My truck's temperature gauge read 29 degrees and my net was frozen stiff.  Fish were hanging to the bottom and fairly well camouflaged in the faster water.  I skipped the pools opting for a little more peace away from the crowds.  I scouted the stream the day before and noticed a couple rises.  The biggest trout I saw was a rainbow over 20" and probably weighing five pounds.

Great coloration on this brook trout.

15Mar08 - I checked-out Cedar creek located between Muhlenberg and Cedar Crest colleges near Allentown, PA.  Cedar creek receives less traffic than the Little Lehigh creek due its smaller size and fewer number of trout.  The stream was clear and low which caused the fish to be skitterish.  Suckers composed 90% of the fish I saw, however, I did see one large brown trout surface and one rainbow trout estimated to be 17-18 inches.  Included below are some of Cedar creek's runs.

I fished the Little Lehigh creek.  The Little Lehigh was slightly high and moderately discolored and running at approximately 190 cfs.  Fishing close to shore or stagnant water was the best bet.  I fished standard trout flies resulting in a few hits, but no hook-ups.
