Fished Spring Creek Park area in the evening. It has hardly rained in this area lately and everywhere is low and clear. I did not expect to have a good day, but after watching the Eagles 3-pt loss a day after standing and screaming through PSU's 3-pt loss I had to get out. Glad I did. Good numbers of caddis in the air when i got to the water around 5:45 pm with several trout leaping out of the water and a few more calmly sipping the bugs. Loads of midges as well, but it didn't seem like any of the trout were eating them.

I started off with a #18 EHC and luckily that was all I needed. As it got darker I went up in size to try to hook some of the nicer fish that I was missing (still got plenty of takes). My first fish of the evening was a little rainbow, probably wild. After that I landed 5 browns up to 10" before deciding it was too dark. Things really went nuts right before dark, I haven't seen that much activity on spring creek since the sulphur hatch. Most of the fish wanted the fly skated directly across or slightly upstream. skating such a small fly led to lots of misses but it was a blast watching them chase! I did get a few takes by dead-drifting as well, including one big fish that immediately broke off. I wasn't paying attention and didn't notice the take until the fish was already running! I'm not sure exactly how big it was, but I'll be back for that one.

Sounds like a nice evening. Good report. I really wish I could get up that way and get a chance to fish Spring Creek more. What a fishery! As far as football goes, there is always next week.
