Are there Hendricksons on Spring Creek? I watched a guy do well fishing a Hendrickson nymph but afterwards a number of people told me they are not found on that stream. What gives? Putting together a little fly selection for the stream. Thanks!

There is not a Hendrickson hatch on Spring Creek.

Never think that because someone catches a trout on a particular imitation, whether nymph or dry or whatever, that it means that that insect exists there.

The larger Sulphur nymphs look very similar to Hendrickson nymphs. The two bugs are closely related.

But even in a stream that had zero mayflies, you could catch trout on a Hendrickson nymph. To a trout it just looks like a bug to eat.

Thanks Troutbert, I understand. Can I assume they don't exist on Penns Creek, Big Spring, or the Yellow Breeches since they are limestone streams too?

They are on Penns Creek and Yellow Breeches Creek.

Not on Big Spring Creek.

I think it is extremely likely that they were on Spring Creek in the past, but were lost, along with many other species. Spring Creek is an urban stream.

Thanks. You've been very helpful. Most of my fishing has been on mountain freestone streams. I have much to learn about limestoners.

Hatch charts will help you. Most famous steams have them and a simple google search should bring one up.
