Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report – January 28,2021
Fishing on the Creeks is still pretty good; however it is mostly subsurface.
At this time of the year there really is not any large insect activity. As a result the fish are a lot less selective. So do not be afraid to try some of your favorite patterns that you use in other places such as the rivers.You may be surprised.
There are occasional 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.
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.
