COMING EVENTS

 

Big Hunting Creek February, 2019

Don't miss the outing to Big Hunting Creek in February. It's a great opportunity to experience the Catoctin Mountain Park in winter and start the new fly fishing year. Watch for specific details on our PPCTU Forum.

Expected hatches are the little black winter stoneflies in #20- #16 and Midges in grey or black in #24-#18. More information can be found in the Guide to Maryland Trout Fishing, The Catch - And - Release Streams, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd editions, by PPTU members Charlie Gelso and Larry Coburn. The book can be purchased, at a discount price, at the PPTU chapter meetings.

Nymphs such as the prince, copper John, bead heads, egg patterns, and San Juan worms can also be effective. Don't overlook soft hackles like Spanish Needle, Grouse and Herl, and Griffiths Gnat, all are worth a try.

A Bright sunny winter day over 50 degrees can really get the stoneflies and the fish moving on this creek.

Directions from Baltimore:

West on I 70 to Frederick, at Frederick take 15 North towards Gettysburg. Proceed for approximately 14 miles to Thurmont. At Thurmont take exit onto Hwy 77. Turn right at bottom of ramp and proceed into Catoctin Mountain Park. The parking lot is on both right and left side of the road at the first bridge that crosses the creek.

To sign up for this outing, please complete the Outing Registration form.

Hope to see you there. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Lou.
