Pennsylvania Hatch Chart

This is a brief list of the many thousands of hatches that are found across Pennsylvania. All dates and time are approximations. Sun, clouds, rain, and temperatures can have a wide range of effects on the timing of all hatches. The first occurrence of most hatches generally start in the southern part of the state and then work there way north.
