I had two days on the river. Boulder field was much more productive.

Two days that's great.

What road is near the Boulder field?

I was thinking about doing a trip to the Lefty Kreh Fishing Trail this month and I might as well hit the boulder field as well.

The trail head and bridge are on falls Rd accessible from Middletown Rd just west of I83. It is not THE Falls Rd but a tight scenic drive. It's about a mile below the damn.

Fshng2, no worries. Good luck. Hatch chart attached from Great Feathers on York Rd. If you stop in say hi for me, and bring your cc. Lots of cool stuff upstairs!

The boys at backwater anglers are a good resource as well. They are on Mt Carmel Rd. Great Feathers, however, has the tying stuff that will make you go "wow, I need that!". No dust mops that I saw, sorry. But I think you have that covered!
