Spring Creek

Tip of the week 

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. A Zebra midge, trailed behind a sowbug or shrimp, is a fine choice and suggestive of the abundant chironomids in limestone water. Finally, a Baetis nypmph in #18, to suggest the hatching mayflies, will be a solid selection.

Seven-day forecast 

As the weather moderates, it is important to remember that football season is starting. Veteran visitors to Central PA know that home Penn State football games mean crowded conditions in local lodging and restaurants and tough travel to and around the area.

Penn State is at home on the following dates:

22 Oct-----Ohio State
5 Nov------Iowa
26 Nov----Michigan State

Plan your fall trips to Central PA accordingly.
