Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report January 13, 2023

 Fishing on the Creeks is good although it is almost entirely subsurface. 

On some warmer days there is a little Midge activity. Most of the fishing is with Midge Larva patterns and small Pheasant Tails. A good combination is a Zebra Midge (size 18 0r 20) and a Sawyer Pheasant Tail (size 18 0r 20).

Scuds and Sow Bugs are also effective during the Winter. My favorite patterns are a Hot Head Sow Bug (16), a Gray, Olive or Tan Scud (18) or a Soft Hackle Sow Bug (18).

Most of the flies suggested above are locally tied and have been my 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 75 patterns by Rene Harrop. 

Many of the fly patterns mentioned can be seen at www.depuyspringcreek.com. Just follow the link to fly patterns.
