Spring Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing a limestoner is always the default technique. Day in and day out, the fish just feed better on the bottom than on the surface. For Spring Creek sowbugs and shrimp (scuds) are 24-7-365 flies, patterns that work virtually year round. The Walt's Worm, a pattern that imitates a crane fly larva, is crucial at this time of year. A Dark Sulphur nymph, suggestive of the prominent mayfly that will hatch for the entire month of May, is also important.

Seven-day forecast 

Things should really pick up in the next week as water levels improve and caddisflies and crane flies start to emerge.
