Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report - July 13, 2021

 

 Fishing on the Creeks is good. The dry fly action is good with a few Midges, good PMD’s and Terrestrials.

There are sparse Midge hatches when conditions are favorable. They are hatching on calm mornings and sometimes on calm evenings. My favorite Midge patterns have been a Mole Midge, a Captive Midge, a Harrop CDC Hanging Midge, a Buzz's   CDC Midge, a Harrop CDC Emerging Midge or a Harrop Grey Adult Midge all in sizes 20 to 22. A great pattern to trail off any of these is Gary's Midge Pupa, a WD-40, a Miracle Nymph or a Zebra Midge all in sizes 18 to 20.

We are seeing fair to good PMD hatches in the late mornings to the early afternoons. .My favorite patterns are a CDC PMD Comparadun, PMD Sparkle DUN, a PMD Comparadun, a Parachute PMD Dun and a PMD Mole Fly. All of these are effective in a size 16 or 18.

With the PMD hatches there have been fair to good PMD Spinner Falls on calm mornings and evenings. The morning spinner falls have been good and are continuing right on into the PMD hatch.My favorite spinner patterns are a Harrop PMD Paraspinner (18-20), our PMD Biot Polywing Spinner (16-20) or our PMD Hen Wing Spinner (16-18).

Along with the warmer weather Terrestrials like Ants, Beetles, Hoppers and Crickets are now available to the fish. My favorite Terrestrial patterns for this time of year are our Jimmies Tri Ant (18-20), a Foam Beetle (14-18), a Harrop Flying Ant (14), a Hi Vis Foam  Ant (20), A Harrop Spring Creek Tan Hopper (14) or our Black Cricket (12).

The Nymph fishing has been good. There are various Mayfly nymphs available to the fish along with Midge Larva and Pupa, Scuds, Sow Bugs alpong with Caddis Larva and Pupa. Sawyer Pheasant Tails, WD-40's and many Midge Larva patterns have all been effective.

    Most of the flies suggested above are locally tied and have been developed especially for the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks by the Spring Creek Specialists Fly Shop.  

       We now have over 500 patterns just for the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks, including 65 patterns by Rene Harrop. , Terrestrials
