Which ones do you think we'll see? I was on a local stream last night and there were a handful on the water and they were BIG. I am stocked with 14-16's but if the big ones are still there I may have to get to tying.

I think 14s and 16s will have you set for Spring Creek. I have been out everynight for the past week and haven't had to go larger and have been very successful.

Size 18 BWOs have worked just as well, depending on the spot. (My brother ran out of sulphurs and tied one on and smashed trout all night on upper Spring Ck.)

Size 16 Sulphur spinners tied behind either the BWO or Sulphur has been the most successful tandem for me.

The sunniest days have produced the best evening hatches but I am assuming by the weekend of the jam, the hatch will be great every night.

I can't speak for Penns, although last week I spotted some March Browns while I was fishing.

I ran into a situation last year where the 18s were coming off and I only had larger flies. The fish weren't having it. Bring both.

It looks to me, from the fly shop reports, that the big ones are done now. Just figured I'd post an update unless a local can post a first hand report.

I saw some #14s still hatching yesterday. And there were #14 spinners around.

But it's mostly the #16s hatching now, and that is mostly what you'll see hatching by this weekend, IMHO.

So tie or buy lots of #16s.

Can't hurt to have some #14s and #18s in the box, though.

Where I fished yesterday evening I saw only #16s hatching.

There were some #14 spinners, but the great majority of the spinners were also the #16s.

Tie or buy lots of #16 sulphur patterns.

If they were bigger then # 14's then it wasn't a Sulphur. Maybe some cahill or gray foxes.

Swinging wets or nymphing sulphur patters has been electric the past few days. I have had awesome evenings underneath and have seen many frustated anglers trying for the top game. Sulphurs duns have been arriving right at dark on Spring Creek up high, so maybe 30 minutes of productive dry fly fishing possible if the trend continues.
