Fly Fishing

Fly Tying

Instruction





Home > Stream Reports > Spring Creek Stream Report
Recent rain brought Spring Creek nearly up to normal flow, and the stream is almost clear on Wednesday, 17 June. Hopefully, enough rain will fall to keep it flowing well. Fishing was tough this morning. I landed a half dozen fish but worked hard for each one. That is really not unusual on falling water on Spring Creek. The fish I caught were so heavy, it's a wonder they bothered to eat my flies at all. Fishing will improve as the water levels and color stabilize.

Hatch activity, other than random tan caddis and light midges, is nil. Best fishing will be either terrestrials along the edges as the water clears, or nymphs like wet black ants, sowbugs, and scuds. That will be the refrain until the Tricos start.
