2011-06-18 Double skunking

When out to the Little J from 10am to 3pm, the road works has been finished. Flows were great, bugs were great, but just no fish. We did see one really nice trout taking sub surface, but we could not induce a take.

After a stop at Spruce Creek Pub for some average fries and breaded mushrooms, but some really nice wings we stopped by the Penn State spruce creek section to see what it is like. The stream was pretty small, about 2-3 wide and up to about 30 cm deep. Might have to give it a go next time.

To try and break the weekend skunk at the little J, I went out to spring creek. There were lots of fish and they were actively taking from the film or from the surface. After throwing basically everything I had that was midge based I have about 4-5 fish snap at my flies, but nothing to hook into.

All in all, a nice day out; but could have been topped off with some fish.
