The dependable hatches and nice scenery always makes this
a nice place to visit.  Coffin flies (green drake spinners),
March Browns, Tan caddis, and #18 sulphurs were enough
to keep us guessing.  I haven't seen the streams look this
good in June for years.  We can only hope it stays that way.

The pictures in this pool were taken on a recent camping trip to Ohiopyle.  As
far as I could see, there is not a bad site in this campground.  Sitting by the fire
or laying in the tent listening to a far-off train whistle from the B&O is as good
as it gets.  I'm glad the fish weren't cooperating, it probably would have ruined
