Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report - January  4, 2022


Fishing on the Creeks decent. There almost no dry fly action.  Although on warmer calm days it is possible to see a few Midges. Most of the fishing is subsurface.

There are Midges active in the Creeks all year. Midge larva patterns are always a good thing to use. We like the following patterns: a Black Beauty, a Red or Black Zebra Midge, a Miracle Nymph, or an Olive, White or Black Midge Larva. All of these patterns in an 18 or 20.

Scuds and Sow Bugs become an important food to the fish in the Spring Creeks during the Winter. There are more of these free floating in the Winter because the weeds are breaking up. Some of the best patterns are: a Grey Sow Bug, a Soft Hackle Sow Bug, a Lee’s Sow Bug, a Hot Head Sow Bug or an Olive, Grey or Tan Scud. Use a size 18 in all of these patterns.

 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.
