Like Penn's Creek Fishing Creek is extremely low. Not only that, algal growth has begun, too. When I stopped by the stream Wednesday afternoon, 20 April, insect activity was slow. There were, however, at least a few Grannom caddis still in the vegetation, and there was a sporadic hatch of Blue Quills. I expected to see a few Red Quills and Hendricksons, but they were not apparent. I expect to see Sulphurs on Fishing Creek in the next week..
