Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report – September 21,2020

  

    Dry fly fishing on the Creeks is still pretty good with good Midge hatches along with some Sulphers, some Baetis and Terrestrials.

   There are good Midge hatches happening on most days. They are hatching on calm mornings and then again 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. 

    On cloudy days we are getting the start of the fall Baetis hatches. My favorite patterns for this hatch is our Max’s Baetis, a Harrop CDC Gray Olive Emerger, a Harrop Gray Olive Dun or a CDC Baetis Comparadun. All of these in a 20 or 22.

    In the early evenings we have been seeing sporadic Sulphur hatches. My favorite patterns have been our Sulphur Sparkle Dun (20), our Sulphur CDC Biot Sulphur Comparadun (20) or our Parachute Sulphur Emerger (22).

    Warmer weather has made Terrestrials like Ants, Beetles, Crickets and Hoppers active. My favorite patterns have been a Tri Ant (18 or 20), a Foam Beetle (14-18), a Daves Hopper (14), a Henrys Fork Hopper (14), a Stalcup Cricket (14) or our Cricket (14).

   The Nymph fishing has been pretty good. There are various Mayfly nymphs available to the fish along with Midge Larva and Pupa, Scuds, Sow Bugs and Caddis Larva. 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.
