STREAM REPORTS

June 2, 2020

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

Spruce Creek is currently clear, but in great shape for fishing with water levels slightly higher than normal for this time of year.

Nymphing continues to be the most productive method for fishing, but Dry Dropper is also working well.  Over the last week we had Green Drakes, but Grey Foxes and Caddis were also on the menu.

Spruce Creek is fishing really well, and the next month presents a great opportunity to spend time fishing in the Spruce Creek Valley.

YELLOW CREEK

Rain earlier in the week has left Yellow Creek with a bit of color, but the water level is very good and the nymph fishing has been excellent. 

We have been seeing an assortment of Mayflies on the water recently including Sulphurs, BWO’s, Baetis and the start of the Blue Quills.

PENNS CREEK

Similar to Spruce, Penns Creek is also in great shape for fishing. Nymphs, Dry Dropper, and Streamers are all producing fish, and on recent days utilizing a varied approach has worked well.

The primary bugs on the water are Grey Foxes, Sulphurs, and Caddis.

Over the last week Penns has fished well for anglers on the water with favorable conditions, that trend should continue well into the summer.

 

LITTLE JUNIATA RIVER

With flows currently under 200cfs, the Little J is slightly under normal water levels for this time of year.

At this level the river is very user-friendly for wading and in good shape for fishing. Nymphs and Streamers are working throughout the day, and dries are working well late into the evenings.

Green Drakes were on the river over the last week, but Sulphurs, Grey Foxes, and Caddis were also in the mix. Anglers spending extra time after guided trips in the evenings looking for risers are being rewarded.
