Left work a little early yesterday and fished up Thunderhead Prong. Arrived at the stream about 3pm and the water temp was 64 degrees. I started out below the confluence of Lynn Camp and Thunderhead and immediately caught two 7" rainbows on a #14 PA. I thought it would be a great trip, but unfortunately I was wrong. I managed only four more fish for the next 3 hrs (3 were dinks). Very few of the fish were looking up and most were very small. The water was low and slow. The slowness of the water being the biggest problem. The few fish that did rise could spend and eternity inspecting the fly before deciding on some action (which was usually to turn tail and hunker back down on the bottom). I had been getting spoiled over on the WPLP with the faster water (and bigger fish).
It is a nice stream although Lynn Camp looked to be nicer. I'll probably give that a go, the next time I sneak out early.
Has anyone had much success lately on Thunderhead or Lynn Camp?
