JULY 10, 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 is fishing well with both nymphs and dries. The water on Spruce Creek is clear; however, flows are still slightly higher than average for this time of year. Water conditions should be in excellent fishing shape for this week. This week’s weather forecast is calling for very comfortable daytime, high temperatures in the low 80’s and very little rain. Anglers on the water are primarily seeing a mixture of Paraleps, Ants, and Beetles. It should be a great week to be fly fishing in Spruce Creek.
Drier weather over the last week has Yellow Creek back down to more seasonal levels with improved clarity. With the improved water conditions, fish are starting to look up and top-water action is getting better. Paraleps, BWO’s and assorted Terrestrials have been working best, both on top and sub-surface.
Penns Creek got hit with rain this week that missed Spruce Creek. The water on Penns has a little color and is slightly higher than average for this time of year. Water conditions on Penns Creek should also be in excellent fishing shape this week. Recent anglers on the water are primarily seeing a mixture of Cahills, Paraleps, Ants, and Beetles. With favorable conditions, Penns Creek continues to be a great option for a day of fly fishing this summer.
LITTLE JUNIATA RIVER
Now that the water has clear and flows are down around 250cfs, the Little J is in the best fishing shape we’ve seen for quite sometime. This week should be a good week to fish the river with nymphs and streamers. As the water continues to drop towards more average flows, the dry fly fishing should become more productive. Anglers on the water recently are seeing a mixture of Cahills, Paraleps, Ants, and Beetles.
