Falling Springs

Tip of the week 

Fishing Report on Falling Spring: 05/15/15
After lunch, Jamie, Matt and I fished the springs. At this point it was still sunny but much warmer. The water was clear 56 and low. It is flowing about 2 inches below normal and that is not good. There was very little hatching, but the wind was blowing for stuff on the water which made for an occasional rise. But, I was here to teach matt some nymphing techniques. Matt did a great job. He landed five rainbows, two browns and one brook trout. Around 3pm, he decided he was beat and needed a little rest. What a great day!
.4X is what I normally nymph with, but lighter tippets are sometimes needed. Most dry flies can be tied off 6X but the tipping point to 7X is around size 20. Dress appropriate-no bright clothes and you are set. These few tips and many more patterns, hatches and techniques can be found in my book, "Spring Creek Strategies" bought at any Orvis store or off my web site.
