According to guide Lance Wilt who lives very close to the stream, Fishing Creek
has not benefitted from the rain that has blessed Spring and Penn's Creeks.
Accordingly, it is low and clear. Nymphing tends to be the most reliable
technique day in and day out on Fishing Creek, but it also can fish well with
terrestrials, due to its abundance of streambank vegetation. When it is low and
clear, it demands slow, careful approaches. Surprisingly good trout can tuck
into tight locations, as long as they have the luxury of overhead cover.
