So the last three nights I have had dreams about being streamside catching trout on the fly. It made me crazy to not be fishing in real life, so I bought my '17 license today and plan to hit the stream ASAP. Western PA, the water is up pretty good in all the bigger streams and rivers around here so I will be targeting smaller water. I am thinking pink egg patterns and maybe some small nymphs? Has anyone been out lately to get an idea what flies may work?

I went out Saturday afternoon for two hours. I made the mistake of reading Trout Bum this week. Temperatures in the high 20s with a slight drizzle off and on in Bedford county. Tried some different go to nymph patterns. I didn't catch anything, the water was actually a lot lower than I expected after the rain.

Hope to get out next weekend too if the weather holds up.
This is probably a dumb question, and I should just look it up ... but I'm being lazy. Can I fish native brook trout water right now if that water is not stocked for trout?
