Armstrong's, DePuy's and Nelson's Spring Creek - May 28th, 2012
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly cloudy
  • 55 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Continued cloudy and cool weather over the long weekend have what few remaining Baetis coming off.  There's a few PMDs mixed in there as well, but we're still a couple weeks away from the real consisten action.   Midges are going to be the mainstay right now and should be on the water as long as the wind stays down.  Remnant baetis hatchactivity todaywill be in early to mid afternoon.  If the sun breaks through, the baetis may tail off until the clouds roll in again.  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 a few spawners in the creeks so pay attention to where and how you are wading. It's the Cutthroat time to spawn. Redds look like saucer shaped super clean gravel depressions in the shallow, fast moving waters.  It's likely that you will physically see a fish or two on or very near these spots.  These are late rainbows or cutties 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.

Coming  off 4 days of sun, today's weather is for clouds and rain with considerably cooler air.  80 degrees it will not be.  What's that going to do for fishing the spring creeks?  Good question.  Guessing that things may actually be pretty good!  Until PMD time in a month or so, cloudy days on the cool side of things tend to be decent days  Midges are going to be the mainstay right now and should be on the water as long as the wind stays down.  It's getting late for spring baetis, but there may be a remnant hatch today with activity in early to mid afternoon. The blue wings are winding down to be sure- though fish will still get up on them given enough are hatching.  Caddis are present as well.  Although not like they are on the Yellowstone.  Still, fish will eat caddis pupa and emergers.  Good nymphing can be had most of the day.  Look for risers on midges in the AM hours.  Blue wing emergence is early to mid PM with the clouds.  If the sun breaks through, the baetis may tail off until the clouds roll in again.  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.

Sounding a bit like a broken record as of late-  cloudy conditions with intermittent rain or even snow showers again today.  Great news for spring creeks anglers in our opinion.  Wind may be a bit more of a concern however.  We like the slick calm, but serious doubts about getting that.  Midges are there and going throughout the day.  Today should see OK baetis activity in early to mid afternoon and rolling through the early evening hours. The blue wings are winding down to be sure- though fish will still get up on them given enough are hatching.  Caddis are present as well.  Although not like they are on the Yellowstone.  Still, fish will eat caddis pupa and emergers.  Good nymphing can be had most of the day.  Look for risers on midges in the AM hours.  Blue wing emergence is early to mid PM with the clouds.  If the sun breaks through, the baetis may tail off until the clouds roll in again.  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.
