Monocacy Creek, Southeast Pennsyylvania



 (pronounced muh-naw-cuh-see) is one of 56 limestone streams in Pennsylvania. With headwaters in Pennsylvania’s  slate belt near Chapman, there are two sections of special regulation water, both with very good populations of wild Brown Trout. The first is a 1.9-mile section beginning at state road #987  downstream to state road #248.  Classified as "wild trout water" it is regulated as class A. The second is the two mile long second section of Class A wild trout water starting at the upper end of the Gertrude Fox Conservation Area downstream to Illicks Mill Dam. As a beginner a got to develop  my skills on it’s  excellent Trico and Sulphur hatches over fifty years ago.
