PRESS PHOTOS BY AL RECKERRoy Hafner, of Whitehall, stands on the bank of Coplay Creek, by the Hokendauqua Park and Playground, on Saturday, opening day of trout season. He said the trout just weren’t biting, possibly because of the swift-running waters and other after-effects of the previous day’s storm. Fishing for 60 years, Hafner remained optimistic. The creek has water, unlike some dry spells
