Re: Grannoms.

Thinking about trying to get into them tomorrow. Making plans now. Thanks guys. Good to know they are around. Breeches and Little J were both in the back of my head.

Re: Grannoms.

This year will be my first time fishing a grannom hatch. What color body do the grannom caddis usually have. I tried to google the image but you get a million different variations. Black and chartreuse bodied elk hairs were in a lot of the pics. Is this accurate?

A peacock herl body will do you just fine. Through a dark cdc or elk hair on for a wing and you will be good to go.

There a couple different species of grannoms. There are two main body colors. Do it depends where you will be fishing which ones you want to tie.

In central PA and NW PA, the most common ones have a charcoal colored body. Not jet black, but blackish like a charcoal briquet. Peacock works too. Size 14 and 16. These have already started on some streams and will be on very soon on others.

Some of the big freestone streams (Pine, Loyalsock etc.) have the grannoms with apple green bodies. Like a Granny Smith apple. Size 14. These start a little later. Check Slate Run fly shops hatch chart. They call these the Green Egg Sac Caddis on there, but that is the same was what other people call the Apple Green Grannoms.

Of course, there are many streams that have no Grannoms, or very few.

Re: Grannoms.

Stranger things have happened, but the grannoms on the little juniata should blow up today down low. There were a few around yesterday, water was 56 degrees at dark last night, and today's temperature/sun ought to get them going around 10:00 this morning.

If the forecasted rain hits heavy tomorrow there may be no fishin' the grannoms this year.

It's a good spot. Just not today.
