Pennsylvania Fly Hatch Chart

This Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Hatch Chart is a collection of dry fly hatches for many Pennsylvania Streams. Dates of the hatches are approximations and can change from year to year. The best way of knowing what is hatching on the streams is to check the Fishing Reports often. Good Luck!
