Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report – November 22, 2020

    

 

  The dry fly activity on the Creeks has slowed. However there are some occasional Midge and Baetis hatches that will bring up fish. The nymph fishing is still good.

   There are sparse Midge hatches on some mornings and again on some evenings. My favorite Midge patterns have been: our Captive Midge, a Harrop CDC Hanging Midge, a Buzz's CDC Midge, a Harrop CDC Emerging Midge or a Harrop Gray 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.

   There are sparse Baetis hatches mid day. If the day is cloudy the hatches are a little better. My favorite patterns are our Max’s Baetis, a Harrop CDC Baetis Gray Olive Biot Emerger or a Harrop Gray Olive Biot Dun or a CDC Biot Baetis Comparadun, all of these in a 20 0r 22.

   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. Midge Larva and Midge Pupa patterns, Sawyer Pheasant Tails, Scuds, Sow Bugs, Caddis Larva and WD-40's have all been very 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.
