Default Re: Opening day in SE PA

Hi Dave,
The Tully has holdovers, and they'll take a dry. It's been my experience that stocked trout won't take a dry until they've been away from the hatchery for a few weeks. A Bead Head Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear works very well for me with freshly stocked trout, and "junk" flies like the Green Weenie do the trick as well. Of course a small Wooly Bugger (with some flash or a bead head) gets the job done nicely if you want to go deeper. I would just as soon skip the stocked trout, as the smallmouth began biting on the Neshaminy last week. There is a stocked lake 4 miles from my house, and I have a new canoe, so I'll probably be out looking for stocked trout with shiny flies today.
