STREAM REPORTS

November 28, 2018

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

Two bouts of rain and freezing rain over the Thanksgiving weekend have Spruce Creek running high and off color as of Tuesday the 27th.

Anglers on the water have had success primarily fishing eggs, worms, and streamers. There is not much precipitation in the forecast this week, stream levels and clarity will improve as we move towards the weekend.

Some rain is forecasted for Saturday with a few days of warmer temperatures Saturday through Monday.

YELLOW CREEK

Conditions on Yellow Creek remain much the same as last week with water levels well above average for this time of year.

Fishing the last week has remained consistent too with some big fish brought to the net with small BWO and Egg patterns.

PENNS CREEK

Penns Creek is also very high, but clarity is currently better than Spruce. As with Spruce, water levels will drop through the week and conditions will improve.

Eggs, worms, streamers and other high water tactics will be the most successful tactics for catching fish at this time.

LITTLE JUNIATA RIVER

The Little J is currently too high to fish and will take some time to drop and clear.

Erie Steelhead

Today marks our fourth completed week of the 2018 Steelhead Season. With continued precipitation, water levels are staying in great shape for fishing and anglers on the water continue to have good to solid days of steelhead fishing.

The Vineyard is fishing well, and fish numbers remain the same as recent weeks with small batches of fresh fish still coming in. The fish numbers in Seclusion and Shangri La have been lower than the Vineyard this season, but fishing solid.

At the present moment, the extended weather forecast over the next couple weeks looks good for steelhead fishing with a lot of the daytime high temperatures reaching the 40’s . It’s not too late to get a couple days on the water in Steelhead Alley this season!
