Home > Stream Reports > Spring Creek Stream Report
It has been a gentle winter in Central PA. Snow has been frequent but not intense. For the most part the few inches of snow that fell was quickly melted by warmer weather and light rain showers. That pattern of snow followed by rain, combined with unfrozen ground, allowed the streams to recover a good deal of their flows. We would certainly like to see more precipitation, but we are in a much better place than we were last summer and fall.

Fishing has been OK, but few anglers have been doing well. In the last few days, however, Blue-winged Olives have begun to hatch with some consistency, and the trout are coming up for them. This is just the kind of activity the most fly fishers anticipate as we hit March. If you are not lucky enough to see trout rising, then try a Baetis Nymph in #18 or an imitation of the omnipresent sowbugs or shrimp. Lastly do not forget that tiny dun/black midges are still on Spring Creek. Don't automatically assume that a rising fish is taking Baetis duns.
