Re: Pine Creek/Little Pine Creek/Slate Run
I was fishing up that way yesterday. I didn't fish Pine, I fished one of the many non-famous tributaries. The water level was perfect, but the water temp was still a little bit cool for the best dry fly fishing. It only got up to 52F in the afternoon on the stream I was fishing.
But I did manage to catch some wild browns and brookies. Some on dry flies, some on nymphs.
Once the water gets just slightly warmer I think conditions will be perfect. From what I've seen in the past, once the mountain streams get to about 56F the dry fly fishing gets really good. The fishing should get real good real soon.
Pine Creek country is not just about the fishing, it's the whole experience. If you have a chance, go.
