Big Fishing Creek Report


According to guide Lance Wilt who lives very close to the stream, Fishing Creek has not benefitted from the rain that has blessed Spring and Penn's Creeks.  Accordingly, it is low and clear.  Nymphing tends to be the most reliable technique day in and day out on Fishing Creek, but it also can fish well with terrestrials, due to its abundance of streambank vegetation.  When it is low and clear, it demands slow, careful approaches. Surprisingly good trout can tuck into tight locations, as long as they have the luxury of overhead cover.
