Backpack Spring Gobbler/trout fishing trip
« on: May 18, 2015, 10:16:20 PM »
Planning to backpack a few miles up into the mountains next Thurs-Sat. 5/28-5/30 in the Hammersley Wild Area, near Cross Fork PA.  Partner had to back out last minute due to family issues.

Going for a relaxing couple days of chasing gobblers and trout and just getting away from it all.

If anybody is interested, let me know. Will go solo, but always more fun with company. Last year did it solo in the Marsh Hill area of Lycoming Co., but had trouble locating gobblers.

This year going to try a bit further west. and have some tips from the local DCNR forester. Hammersley Wild Area is supposed to be the largest tract of roadless terrain in the state. And full of wild trout streams.

I have all the gear- extra one-man lightweight tent, backpack, sleeping pad etc.............

Have fun in god's country. I think that's Kettle Creek out there. Once when the Pine was too high to fish I spent a day over the mountain at Kettle. Got a few but never did find any natives way up in the little waters.

If the hatches weren't on I'd be game to join you.  Things are happening big time on the bigger trout streams and rivers.

Thanks FM! Yep- Kettle creek there where you head up the Hammersley trail. Then lots of smaller trout streams like Hammersley fork and others that feed into Kettle. Figure if the natives aren't cooperative, I'll head back down and try Kettle Creek.

HD- no problem. I know it's prime time for you hard-core fly-fishers!  ;D
