We had a bunch of Lehigh Gorge Trips this week, White Haven to Rockport. Water temp was 55-60 degrees, air temps were all over the place. Thankfully fish were as well. I think every boat encountered fish top to bottom with most boats landing 10-20 fish per day. Caddis, Grey Foxes, BWOs, and March Browns are all present for the past few days with no hatch dominating. Parachute Adams type patterns have dominated surface feeding fish and various bugger patterns, soft hackles, and prince nymphs have all caught plenty of fish. Streamer fishing was successful with and without sink tips, the water changes character so rapidly in this stretch that it’s possible to be productive with many different rigs. Fish were tight to seams and bank structure for the most part. The highlight of the week for me(Tim) was a 17 fish day with 16 fish being brookies and none under 12″, the top brookie being 15-16″ and all on dry flies. Awesome day. All of the anglers we had this week enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Lehigh Gorge. We had the day off today because of the weather, there were snow flurries in White Haven as we discussed the day with our clients, but we’ll be in the Gorge as much as we can this week before we lose the water, though the weather forecast is indicating that we’ll see some more more moisture on tuesday.
