Well, trout season is going to open March 29th for us lucky ducks in SE Pennsylvania. Can't wait to throw the fly again for trout---I must be weird, the 2 kinds of fishin' I love are fly fishing and cat fishing (seems like I am on 2 opposite ends of the spectrum)

Oh well---do whatcha like to do, I guess :wink:

Went for the first time last spring, going to Tenn. again this May. I am pumped already. New waders, new boots, new flies.

I may have to finagle a short trip or two to the WV streams before then.
Been playing with the stockers in a local lake but that aint getting it.

Have fun with those new boots and waders and I hope those flies produce for you. Got a new combo myself and am itching to try it out. BTW, I am originally from WV--outside of Charleston in Putnam County. You will have to school me on some good streams to hit when I come back to visit my family.:cool2:

Darn near X neighbors! I'm here in Cabell Co.!

At this point there is not much I can teach anybody about it, But I'm learning!

A place I can recommend is Smoky Mountain Nat Park near Townsend Tenn. I like it down there so much I'm going again.
Townsend is close to Gatlinburg but on the "quite side" of the mountain. They just about roll the sidewalks up and 9:30 pm., great fishing, a great fly shop, and boy is it pretty down there!

I hear tell the Gordons have started to hatch already and the fish weathered the drought in good shape.

Ahhhh trout season opener. Ive hated that day since I moved to the city. I grew up in cattle country fishing the perkiomen (since age 4) and now Im stuck fishin the lil lehigh. I got tired of the shoulder to shoulder fishing, the idiots trying to snag palomino in the mouth to make it look legal and not fish commissioners there to report them to and people getting angry at me cause I caught something and all they have is a drowned worm. Seriously. I'd sleep in and show up late. I'd ask if they'd mind if I could take a cast or two by them. They say yes, I work my magic and bam. fish on the stringer and some guy who gave me permission is peeved cause in 2-3 hrs of fishing, he never knew it was there. I fish trout aggressively. I read the water, work a pool over and move on & hit it again later with something different on the way back to the car. I dont drown bait like I do when catfishing. So now I just avoid the water most of the day and go in the evening or within the next 3 days before its fished out completely.

Yeah, for some reason several SE counties open March 29th. The rest of the state opens in April. I wonder why they set it up that way.
Thet set it up that way cause the streams in eastern part of the state warm up earlier than the northern and western Pa. countys. The fish trucks can access the streams earlier out your way. Many of the northern streams are stocked on rural and dirt roads which are impassable at times with snow.
