A nice 28" buck from the Grand
Well, better late than never... unless we're talking steelhead haha. The cool temps that have persisted in the area mean we still have high numbers of steelhead in the rivers, though each day now numbers are dropping. The grand is really shining right now in terms of steelhead fishing. Good, higher flows that have decent visibility means great spey fishing. Most fish we are catching now are colored up or dropping back, though there are still more than a few fresh run, chrome fish. Looking ahead, we are getting to the point that water temp is going to start being an issue for steelhead. Today is forecasted in the upper 70's, while tomorrow should be above 80. Water temps right now are pretty consistent in 50's, but with a few warm days in the mix, that will rise.
But we do have rain and some cooler temps on the way the end of this week and sporadically next week. So this should mean steelhead will stick around at least through next week. Again, just be mindful if it's a warm day. This weather will move in a lot of smallmouth though, so fishing to slow water log jams can be an exciting way of weaning off steelhead haha.
Pennsylvania trout fishing is starting to pick up in earnest. Matt has been hitting the central PA trout rivers like Spring Creek, and is gearing up for a hosted trip to Penns in two weeks. Good grannom hatches are occuring almost daily and the wild browns are starting to take notice. We should have great trout fishing for the next two months or so!
All in all, nows a great time to get outside and explore!
