Good trout stream in Cicada Area?

Twelve more years for Cicadas in my area. Friend and I looking for a good stream to catch and release during a weekend around June 15th or 22nd. Willing to travel a ways, can anyone PM me any suggestions on a good trout stream in the Cicada area, preferably in a rural or mountanious area?

Re: Good trout stream in Cicada Area?

Since the cicada emergence is concentrated in SE PA, I think the fishing opportunities will be far more for warmwater flyfishing, for smallmouth and carp, than for trout.

The chance to catch big carp on dry flies is something that shouldn't be missed.

Re: Good trout stream in Cicada Area?

IF...They actually do appear in my area which they are supposed to heavily (Lehigh Valley) I can most certainly point you in the right direction easily. You're not going to find too many moutain trout streams in SE PA but rural I can supply you.

Re: Good trout stream in Cicada Area?

I looked at several maps for the Cicada brood, first one I looked at showed Potter County and the other map did not. I had my hopes for Potter County, but I think the map showing Potter County may have been wrong.

Trout 2003 Leigh valley area would be good. I mostly fish Franklin, Cumberland, Fulton, and Huntingdon County streams. I looked at the PFBC maps of trout streams and it looked like a hit or miss on me trying to choose one on my own.

Rural would be good, please let me know when you see the emergence and some recommendations on a stream or two.

Re: Good trout stream in Cicada Area?

The Yellow Breeches should be a good bet . Nice water with room to cast such large flies .

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !

I'll hook you up PA. We have some tremendous streams over this way. If they're feeding on them you'll have a blast catching trout up to 20-22" possible.

Re: Good trout stream in Cicada Area?

According to the PA 2013 map, Cumberland and York Counties Cicadas emerged in 2008 which is the counties that I believe the Yellow breeches flows within, otherwise I would be set as I could make it there in less than an hour.

The 2013 cicadas are scheduled to emerge in counties that I have never fished before and being mostly in the south eastern part of the state I know the waters tend to warm up faster along with low flow and I want to be on some good water rather than go by chance.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Many maps say they will be in Potter but they aren't here yet so I doubt it.
