STREAM REPORTS

November 13, 2019

Over the past several years, the weekly stream report has become a popular and anticipated communication for our members and guests. Once a week, HomeWaters' experienced guides and staff provide stream conditions, hatch information and advice on what flies to use when on the water. Be sure to visit this page for the most up-to-date information on all of our Club’s streams.

SPRUCE CREEK

We continue to have anglers on the water nearly everyday, taking advantage of the good fishing that this fall continues to offer.

Water conditions on Spruce Creek are in good shape for fishing this time of year. Nymphs and streamers are going to be your best bet at putting fish in the net.

Anglers on the water recently are seeing small Blue Winged Olives and a few Caddis. The next month is a great time to get in as many days on the water as possible before this winter sets in!

 

 

YELLOW CREEK

Cold fall temperatures are here and while the cold has slowed things down a bit, there are still some great fishing opportunities on Yellow Creek.

Bug activity has been good on warmer days; look for peak action through the warmest times of the day when we are seeing decent numbers of BWOs and Midges.

 

 

 

PENNS CREEK

As the weather gets colder this time of year, Penns Creek always tends to fish well. Water levels on Penns are also holding up well for fishing. Nymphs and streamers will be the best bet for putting fish into the net.

The forecast over the next week looks good, and we expect the good fall fishing to continue. Recent anglers on the water are seeing a few small Blue Winged Olives, Caddis, and Midges.

Over the next month will be a great time to get in as many days on the water as possible before winter sets in!

LITTLE JUNIATA RIVER

With flows down under 150cfs, water levels on the Little J are right around average for this time of year.

These water conditions are in good shape for wade fishing the river. Look for nymphs and streamers to produce the best results. On colder days focus more on fishing the hours from mid-morning through the afternoon.

Anglers on the water recently are seeing small Blue Winged Olives and a mixture of Caddis. Similar to Spruce and Penns, the next month is the time to schedule extra days on the water.

 

ERIE STEELHEAD

This week marks our third week of fishing this fall in Steelhead Alley. Over the weekend, anglers on the water experienced good days of fishing, and the larger than average size of the fish this year continues to impress.

Water conditions are currently in good shape, and a fresh batch of fish came in over the weekend increasing numbers from last week by a noticeable difference.

If you want to catch Steelhead this fall, the next month will be your best bet!
