Buzz's Spring Creek Fishing Report - February 23,2018
Occasionally you are now able to find fish rising to Midges. The nymph fishing continues to be good as there are plenty of fish in the Creeks.
There are now a few Midge hatches and they are occurring mid day on warmer days. As the weather warms up in the next few weeks the hatches will become more consistent. 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..
The Nymph fishing has been good. There are various Mayfly nymphs available to the fish along with Midge Larva and Pupa, Scuds, t 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.
