Armstrong's, DePuy's and Nelson's Spring Creek - April 19th, 2012
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 55 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Clouds hanging around as well as tolerable wind conditions shoujld make for another very good day on the spring creeks.  Midges are there and going throughout the day.  Today should see good baetis activity in early to mid afternoon and rolling through the early evening hours.  Good nymphing can be had all day.  Look for risers on midges this AM.  And hopefully will continue through with the blue wing emergence.  Streamers?  You bet!  Small black or dark olive streamers placed in the juicy looking structure spots will see their share of good takes.  So, the whole story goes- be flexible, make it fun.

Be aware that there are still quite a few spawners in the creeks so pay attention to where and how you are wading.  The rainbow redds look like saucer shaped super clean gravel depressions in the shallow, fast moving waters.  It's likely that you will physically see fish on or very near these spots.  These are rainbows that are likely actively spawning .  Let's leave them alone and let them do their thing.  And wading through these areas can be detrimental to the success of the eggs hatching and becoming the next generation of wild MT trout.  If you think it might be a redd, stay off!  Go around and wade away from these locations.  There are plenty of other spots to fish on the spring creeks besides the big spawning beds....And thank you for your consideration.

Fishing on the spring creeks remains consistently the same-- good on the days when the wind remains relatively light.  A bit tougher on the days its is nuking.  Seems that we can't quite win it all.  IE that is to get that day that we get warmer temps without the wind.  Can we get this?  Yep. Hopefully I'll be around for that day and fishing the spring creeks!

Midges are there.  So are Baetis. They should be increasingly important. Good nymphing can be had most days.  Dry fly fishing depends on that wind thing we already talked about.  Streamers?  You bet!  Small black or dark olive streamers placed in the juicy looking structure spots will see their share of good takes.  So, the whole story goes- be flexible, make it fun.

There have been good reports coming in from anglers fishing Depuy's.  Midge hatches have been consistent in the afternoon and the baetis are just around the corner.  CDC midges, Griffith's Gnats, and Hackle Stackers will all catch fish on top.  Zebra midges in red and black under a pinch on indicator will cover your nymph needs.

Wintertime on the spring creeks.  Can be a great option for fishing this time of year!  Being a spring creek, the waters here are much more moderated in temps.  Trout in the creeks are active for a bit longer than in the river.  But it's still winter, so it's not like the summertime when fish are on the feed much more consistently.  Look for the deeper slower places on the creek. You can likely see the fish stacked up in there.  Nymphing is going to be the most likely means to get a bend in your rod.  Think small whether it's eggs, flossy san juans, or midge patterns.  Think simple as well.  Thinly dressed patterns without flashy beadheads have a greater tendency to find their way into a trout's mouth on the creeks.

You know what's not bad about the creeks in the winter besides the fishing opportunities?  Off season rates!  $40/day sure beats the Ben Franklin from high season.  Want to fish the creeks frequently in the off season?  Get a seasons pass on Depuy's for $400.00 and it's good until April 15th.  Fish 10 days and you're paid up.  Fish more, and, well, you can do the math on that one.
