Home > Stream Reports > Spring Creek Stream Report
Spring Creek is in superb shape as this update is posted on the afternoon of Wednesday, 29 April. There are still a few BWOs hanging around, but increasingly, tan caddis and yellow and orange crane flies will be the emergences that will lure trout to the top. Best nymphs for this time of year are the normal sowbugs and shrimp, Dark Sulphur Nymphs, and Walt's Worms. There is little need to drop much below a #14 fly or 4X tippet, since there is still a good deal of flow. Conditions could not be better. Water temperatures are good, and feisty, fat trout are feeding.

Sometimes looked down upon, the green weenie is a must have for fishing our local streams.  Using this as an attractor pattern in a tandem nymph rig is highly effective.  We will often pair it up with a scud, cress bug or zebra midge.
