Fly Tying


Home > Stream Reports > Spring Creek Stream Report
Streams in Central PA are flowing at extremely low levels due to an almost snow-free winter and a very dry early spring. It is not a stretch to say that water levels are at mid-June flows. We need precipitation in the worst way, but there is little or no chance of any significant rainfall for at least the next week.

Baetis hatches lasted for almost six weeks on Spring Creek, but they have finally started to wind down. It would not be surprising to see a few of the little Olives still hatching, although their place is being assumed by tan caddis and crane flies. Furthermore, there have been decent Sulphur emergences as well. Greg Hoover's projection that hatches are 7 or more days early is being borne out. What should be the May pattern is now happening on Spring Creek. Sulphurs. caddisflies, crane flies, and their attendant underwater and surface imitations will be the highlight of the angling for the next month.
