Episode 265: Fly Fishing Spring Creeks with More Success

Fly fishing spring creeks with more success often demands more finesse than fishing freestone rivers. The water temperature is more consistent in spring creeks, and the food more ubiquitous. If you want to catch fish in a spring creek, your tackle must be lighter, and you need to be more stealthy.

But there are some other keys when fly fishing spring creeks with more success: They include moving from run to run more quickly and switching up your rig when you’re not catching fish. There’s no honor in staying with the same rig all day and never netting a fish. And then, ultimately, when fly fishing springs creeks ends up a bust, there’s always dinner at your local supper club or pub.
