Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 5/19/15
These days it's tough to find a day when the creeks aren't fishing good! Baetis and midges are still the go to. If you get some clouds during the day watch for hatches. In between you can run a dry dropper, or double nymph rig using baeits nymphs, and midge larva. No need to get on the creeks before 9:30 or 10 am. Nights are still pretty cold. The forecast is calling for a little warmer weather with showers. Should be an excellent fishing week. Stop by the shop for our pattern suggestions. We can get you set up!

Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 5/15/2015
Fishing on the private creeks has been very good the last week. With plenty of clouds, midges and baetis have been hatching. Expect the fishing to be good throughout the weekend with the forecast predicting more clouds and showers. The Midge larva patterns along with baetis nymphs are your go to when the bugs are not hatching. A great time to get out and enjoy this water. Stop by the shop to pick up our recommended patterns!

Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 5/9/2015
Not much has changed since the beginning of the week. Midge and Baetis can still be seen hatching on the creeks. The larva and pupa stages of these bugs will get fish eating as well. These last few days have been cloudy and cooler. This weather is supposed to continue until middle of next week. We may see some precipitation as well. If you get a cloudy day expect to see some hatches. Again this is a great time to be on the creeks and try something new!

Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 5/4/2015
The baeits and midge fishing on the creeks has been good. The dry dropper rig with a 12 ft leader and light (at least 6x) tippet is a great set up. When you get to the creek take a minute and observe. See where the fish are eating and approach with caution. In between hatches you may have some good fishing on small ant and beetle patterns. The weather has been more summer like these last few days so don't count the terrestrials out. A great time to be on the creeks and test your skills when the Yellowstone is muddy!

Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 4/24/2015
Two words, Spring Baetis! The fishing on the creeks has been sensational with hatchs of Baetis and Midges. Fish key in on these bugs and are eating off the surface. The last few days have been warm making these bugs pop! Cloudy today which makes for perfect fishing conditions. Since the Yellowstone is muddy this is where I would be. A great way to stay away from the crowds too! Inbetween hatchs using midge larva and baetis nymphs will still produce fish. Good luck out there!

Paradise Valley Spring Creek Flyfishing Report 4/17/2015
Fishing on the spring creek is really something every angler needs to experience. Now is a great time to go with hatchs of BWO's and adult Midges you are sure to have your skills tested with these fish. Inbetween hatches use midge, caddis, and mayfly larva/pupa patterns to fool the trout. Long leaders and light tippet are a must. Start with 5X, if they are shy to eat or eating around your fly go smaller with 6X or even 7X. If all else fails a small leach pattern can be very effective this time of year. Rates are now at $80 per rod. Get out there!
