With the recent and current rain event, anglers are catching trout using streamers along the banks!  Target stream banks and woody debris with your streamer on Spring Creek during or just after rain events and you won’t be disappointed!

NOTE: During high water events, woody debris can cause great hazard for anglers wading.  Keep checking upstream if you are fishing to make sure you don’t get knocked into the water by a passing log.

Spring Creek  Water flow is good and the temperatures are in the low 60s. Anglers are catching trout using nymphs. A few tricos are still being seen along with the occasional cahill, tan caddis and of course midges and BWOs. Unweighted nymphs and caddis emergers are working well. 

Early morning and late evening are the best times to be on the water. In the early morning hours try using a streamer along the slack water and bank areas. The streamer of choice is a slumpbuster (6-10).

    Specifics and Tips:     Nymphing will be your best bet for consistent activity during the day. Fish the banks and slack water with streamers. Trico's will be hatching early in the day look for spinners around 9-11am. Seeing occasional cahill, tan caddis, midges and some BWO's, fish are rising but most takes will be subsurface, try unweighted nymphs and caddis emergers. It's terrestrial time, give a beetle or wet ant a try.
