    I flyfish, that creek is very productive certain times of year. Ive had good luck all through there, but if you park directly across from the entrance to the coal mine on Dunbar Ohiopyle road, and work your way downstream a ways, you can get to relatively untouched water and some great holes and pools. Should be tough navigating it on monday, I don't know what flows are like but it will be SLIPPERY. Be careful and good luck.

    You named some of my favorites! My family is originally from the Uniontown area and my grandparents and other relatives still live down there. I've been stomping around up there chasin rainbows, grouse and deer forever it seems. There is some nice Native fishing around Quebec Run area if your willing to hike. The little sandy hasn't produced for me last few times up there for some reason.

    Yeah most of em aren't that far, all of the ones he listed are basically up 40. Elliotsville area, Ohiopyle area, the furthest is Whites Creek, that is basically up 40 and Addison/Listonburg/Unamis area there is a good piece of Whites right there off 523, you go up the road out of Listonburg like your headin for Mt. Davis and make the first right iirc, been years since I was on White's. That is the creek I caught my first rainbow on years ago, I remember it well, opening day and went into Salisbury or Meyersdale for the Maple festival and Pancakes at the Lions. This thread brings the awesomeness.

    I have always wanted to catch a native... Maybe we could set up a Sat/Sun were we could get out and do some fishing. What does everyone think?

    Never caught a native trout in PA. I really didn't even think there was such a thing any longer, just hold-over from previous years. Are they pink inside?

    i love fly fishing ... but never been to these spots. heard of them, just never went.

    been to bunbar ... near the old peachins market. not bad but up stream about 5 mile is better. fly only. but dont go too early ... game officer lives across the bridge and watches the creek hard. i got busted there for fishing there 1 week after stocking it. ... many good fish cought, come legal day to fish there ... nothing over 6''. but still fun !

    Pink is an indication that they've been eating freshwater shrimp.

    FWIW, I grew up within 5 minutes of PA's best flyfishing stream. It's Yellow Creek's catch and release area in Bedford County.

    Its an active mine, and it is just the access road to the mine itself. It's not able to be photographed as far as I know, you could try to drive up to the office and ask but I bet they'd tell ya to get lost because of homeland security or something. PM me NavyCaptain8.

    I just saw the first green drake of the season this morning.It landed on my work truck around 6am.
    I,m on vacation next week and should hit this major hatch just right,last year and the year before I was catching around 50 fish per day on East Hickory creek on rt 666.There,s also a sulpher hatch going on at the same time and they hatch about 2hrs earlier than the drakes so your busy all day with dry flies!
