Saturday morning I drove up to my regular spot on Catherine Creek expecting a large crowd. As I arrived there was not a single car to be found parked along Rt 14 between Montour Falls and Milport, so I wondered, what’s up? Maybe there are no fish in this hole? Will I catch something today? What’s going on?
I threw on the waders, zipped up my vest, and trekked to the hole. And wouldn’t you know it I was the only one there! Didn’t take long before I hooked up with my first fish, a 15 inch rainbow on a chartreuse fly. Not long after that a single angler came up, we chatted a bit about how we hadn’t seen anyone fishing on this perfect day. We both fished some more, by the time he left, he had hooked two nice rainbows, and I another. If I had time I am sure my day would have produced several more. However, life beckoned and I left by 830am to get about the rest of the weekend with my family.
