Tulpehocken Creek

Rebers Bridge Tulpehocken Creek


This evening I got to spend a few hours on one of my favorite streams in Pennsylvania. The Tully did not fail to show up. There were plenty of fish in the stream, and as usual it was a chess match to identify what they were feeding on. 

Upstream of Rebers Bridge


I began and ended my night upstream of Rebers Bridge. The fish were feeding steadily all night. However, I failed to nail what they were flashing and chasing after. All of my fish came to persistent prospecting.



This Great Blue Heron stayed within 30 feet of me all afternoon. My fishing buddy. He was also the only other fisherman I saw all night.


I caught two browns on a #16 Squirrels Nest nymph


I was able to round out the night with at least one fish on the surface as the hatches picked up just before dusk. This Rainbow decided he would rise for a #16 Sulfur LTD.
A good night on the water overall.
