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, and water levels are holding steady. While the flows are still above historical averages for this time of the year, they are the lowest we have seen in pretty much the last 14 months!
Dry fly action continues to be very limited, but there were some fish caught on the surface last week. With the extra water in the Spruce, the nymph fishing continues to be great. Anglers on the water recently are primarily seeing Blue Quills, Caddis, and a few Cornutas (large BWOs).
Looking ahead, we are set up with really good conditions for summer fishing.
We continue to enjoy some of the best water conditions that we have had in months on Yellow Creek and some great fishing to go along with it.
Blue Quills, Baetis, and few assorted Sulphers have been the main hatching bugs during the past week (in addition to Terrestrials, which will be one of the mainstays for the summer months).
Water levels on Penns Creek are slightly higher than average for this time of year, but also the lowest we have seen this year. It is in great shape for fishing.
It’s always nice to see extra water in Penns Creek during these summer months. Nymphs produced the best fishing over the last week, but Streamers and Dry Flies also accounted for a few fish.
Anglers on the water recently saw a few Blue Quills, Cahills, and Cornutas (large BWOs). Terrestrials should start to play a primary role on Penns Creek soon.
LITTLE JUNIATA RIVER
Water levels on the Little J remain higher than average for this time of year, but we’ve had better windows for wade fishing recently compared to levels most of the spring.
Nymphs, Soft Hackles, and Streamers produced the best fishing. Over the last week there seemed to be fewer bugs around and less opportunity for dry fly fishing, but that could change by the day.
Anglers on the water recently are primarily seeing a mixture of Cahills, Caddis, and Blue Quills.
