Fished several times on the upper stretches of the Yellow Breeches. Almost every fish is a wild brown and usually in the 9-11 inch size range. Parachute adams, caddis and attractor flies work best in this section. A highlight of the month was on August 25th when I took Eric Schuchart and his stepson Ethan Blum flyfishing for the first time. Ethan is a an avid outdoorsman and is a very respectful teenager and I was privileged to go with him. Ethan was a fast learner and caught his first trout with a flyrod. He made a great cast in a riffle which emptied into a pool and enticed an 11 inch wild brownie to take a caddis. Ethan is “hooked”.
Tim Brookens and I had a good day on Codorus Creek on the last hay of August.
