Home > Stream Reports > Spring Creek Stream Report
After a nasty winter during which little fishing was done, we are finally getting a break in the weather. The complication is that snow melt is raising water levels quickly and chilling it as well It remains to be seen whether or not water levels will remain fishable.

There is other good news, too. Blue-winged Olives have begun to hatch in the Milesburg area on Spring Creek, although our informants tell us that the fish were not rising to them. After this winter even the promise of a few rising fish down the road sounds good! Until the trout take notice of the Olives on the surface, Baetis nymphs and the usual fare of sowbugs and shrimp will be your best bet.

Blue-winged Olive, #18
Dun/Black Midge, #24-28
