Yes. We belong to one of the fly fishing clubs on the Lackawaxen; 6 miles of fishing. For real hatches of defined insects; almost like clockwork, and true match-the-hatch fishing, the clean and clear waters of the Lackawaxen are hard to beat in our area.

My wifes from Hawley & I used to fish all over that area. I used to camp in the gravel pit downstream from Rawlings when I went with friends. I only got caught in rising water from lake Wallenpaupack once & after that was careful. I also used to fish The Shohola, Bushkill, & Dyberry creeks. It's a nice area & is on my list of possible retirement areas,

I love to walk to river. Always my first choice.

We also fish the Bushkill; up around the Boy Scout camp. Very nice water; well maintained and not over-stocked.

Favorite streams for us are: Mud Run, Hickory Run, Kistler's Run, Tobyhanna Creek, Tunkannock Creek, Swiftwater Creek, Broadhead Creek, Paradise Stream, the Lackawaxen and the Little Lehigh River. All except the Lackawaxen are within 20 minutes of home.

We live in Pocono Pines; at the top of the Pocono plateau. When I retire, I'm going back to Massachusetts; but it is nice up here if you're the outdoor type. I fished on Wednesday and skied yesterday!

I walk and wade most of the time. I really enjoy the White Salmon from Husum down to NW lake with my pontoon boat from when ever the water drops to the close of the season.

It's all wading, whether it's on the Little Juniata, Yellow Creek, Spruce Creek or one of the many streams around State College.

I like your game plan Pocono; I used the same one this week. I fished Yellow Creek on Tuesday and skied Blue Knob on Friday night!

I fish from the drift boat most of the time, but like to wade on smaller streams.

Greenwood, off the subject, you're in Mike McFarlands neck of the woods. He's lives a stones throw from Spruce Creek and he fishes the LJ quite a bit too. You ought to look him up and check out his rods if you like glass.

Thumbs up Re: how do you fly fish at you local stream?

Because of my health I can not wade any more. I fish the AuSable river here in Michigan. I fish from an AuSable river boat with a guide. I do at least two trips a year. It's one fantastic way to fish.
