Pine Creek fly stretch

Pine Creek stocking took place yesterday...nice weather for the weekend...anybody heading up?

From the Slate Run Tackle AShop website:

Straub Brewery of St. Marys, Pa. makes a very substantial donation to the Slate Run Tackle Brown Trout Club each year. We are doubling our Brown Trout Club stocking from $10,000 worth of trout to $20,000 worth so that the whole catch-and-release trout stretch will have the same trout density as the delayed harvest did in the past. These large, wonderful fish offer a great experience for trout fishermen in "The Stretch." Since it is a "catch and release" area these fish will offer many repeat opportunities to trout anglers throughout the year, and we have found there are many very large holdovers lurking from the mouth of Slate to the Naval Run Pool.

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

The last time I fished there it was before the regulations were changed to Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only (DHALO). I’ve heard it gets intense pressure now.

No doubt, but the Pine Creek Valley alone is worth the trip.

I still go up to that region, but I fish other places.

Just about any large trout stream with abundant public access is going to receive a good deal of pressure but the fishing can and often us still very good (obviously or it wouldn't continue getting pressure.) I've seen it in the Adirondacks, particularly on the WB Ausable and even on the Upper Connecticut in remote Pittsburg, NH. Still with a large stream and lots of access up and down the river, anglers can still find less crowded stretches to fish.

I fished a Smokies river in NC that had a long DHALO stretch and by far the bulk of the pressure came as soon as the harvest season opened.

Exactly. It will probably be crowded. But if you have a chance to go the Pine Creek valley, go. It's beautiful.

Go into the Slate Run store and if you're lucky you'll hear Tom Finkbinder telling stories. He's got some great ones!

And don't forget to eat lunch while you are there. Their sandwiches always hit the spot.

Fond memories from the area. Used to stay in English Center, eat at the store across the street. I think there was a "where's the beef" burger or something. Slate run had some awesome brookies in it, first time we ever caught one.
