    Specifics and Tips:     Nymphing will be your best bet for consistent activity during the day. Fish the banks and slack water with streamers. Trico's will be hatching early in the day look for spinners around 9-11am. Seeing occasional cahill, tan caddis, midges and some BWO's, fish are rising but most takes will be subsurface, try unweighted nymphs and caddis emergers. It's terrestrial time, give a beetle or wet ant a try.

    Hot Patterns:     Trico (20-24) Tan CDC Caddis (14-18) BWO's (18-22) Pheasant Tails (14-18) Tan and olive bird of prey caddis (14/16); Brown Zebra Midge (18-22); Walt's Worm (14/16); Olive Scud (14-18); Sow Bug (14-16), adult midges (#20-24), Slumpbusters (6-10)

Foster Joseph Sayers Dam- anglers are catching crappies and nice-sized Yellow Perch at the Spillway and at the breast of the dam on wet redworms and minnows.  They are also catching some bass and perch at the Upper Greens Run area.

In addition to that, there is a lot of kayaking and canoeing happening at Black Moshannon and at Foster Joseph Sayers Dam. On the Bald Eagle, there are many unpowered boat experiences happening there, as well.

Penns Creek water levels are getting lower. As a result, fish are moving into the banks and into the shade; so target those areas when you are fishing.

Nymphs are working on Spring Creek throughout the day. However, early morning and early evening is when fishing is most successful.
