Big Fishing Creek Report

 

I visited Fishing Creek in the Narrows about 1:30 on 16 April.  There is plenty of water with good clarity.  There were no Grannom caddis; nor did I see a single Hendrickson or Blue Quill.  The recent warm weather apparently has not raised water temperatures enough to get these spring emergences started.  Any angler who  visits Fishing Creek in the next ten days should have matching patterns in his fly box, however.  Until then. large nymphs will be your best bet.
