Home > Stream Reports > Spring Creek Stream Report
Central PA streams are starting to drop sharply. Rainfall has been frequent, but accumulation has been slight. Then too, vegetation is leafing out aggressively, and plants are using more water as well. The combination of lower than usual flows and warm weather are continuing the trend of hatches a week earlier than normal.

Spring Creek has been seeing tan caddis and Sulphurs for more than a week. For the most part, the insects have not been prolific, but because of reduced water levels, the fish are still oriented to the top. Dry fly anglers have been happy even if nymph fishers have been catching more and better fish. Dark Sulphur Nymphs take fish well, but don't forget about the usual sowbugs and scuds either. The next batch of truly warm weather we see should cause a real burst of bugs.
