I was at one of my favorite trout streams today, Broadhead Creek in Canadensis, PA and I got to thinking that we all talk together a lot on this forum, but we haven't had a lot of time to get to know what type of water each of us likes to fish.
So, I thought I'd start a thread that let's everyone show the other forum members the places/types of water that we fish or like to fish best. I'll put in the first installment and we'll see where this thread goes.
This is Broadhead Creek; it's fed by multiple steep-grade tributaries and at its tail it becomes part of the Lehigh River, which empties into the Delaware River and eventually ends up in Chesapeake Bay. The Broadhead is one of the best known trout streams in the Poconos and it never fails to impress me (and it gives up a goodly number of fish, too; all catch and release water).
This pic is from about midway on the main stem of the Broadhead; close to the site where Jim Leisenring and Pete Hiddy were working out their soft hackle and flymph patterns in the '50's and 60's. This was a mild water day; this river can really roar after a good rain when all the tribs are emptying into it and being blown-out is just part of getting used to fishing the Broadhead. I really like fishing the base of the falls and the riffles.
Another section; a little quieter and with some good runs and deep pools.
Here's one of the tribs. This is Stoney Run. It's a very steep gradient small creek and if you're looking at this picture and thinking "Brookie", then you're thinking the right way!
And, of course, even die hard fly fishermen can't live by fish alone. So, after a fun day and some good hook-ups, here's where I head.
Let's have a look at where you all like to fish.
