Spring Trout Fishing

Recommended Posts

I am going to be down at the river near mammoth spring around march tenth. This will be my first time so I need some tips on flys/lures to use for trout this time of year. Also I'd like to know which accesses would be best for shore fishing/wading.

Thanks!

I will be going to Spring River on April 9th also. The best flies I have found this time of year has been the Y2K in egg color on the 1/10oz head. Also if the spin cast thing is what you are looking for the Lealand Lure Trout Magnet works great and also the Lealand Lure trout crankbait is great in the Brown Trout Pattern, this will also bring some nice Smallmouth to net. We might see you on the water.

I would like to give a plug to a couple of great folks at Mammoth Spring that are trying hard to get a resort going on the banks of the river right there in Mammoth. Not 1/4 mile from town on Hwy 63. (Turn right at the South end of Goosneck Island Parking Lot Drive not easy to see) They have campsites, a small fly shop, and 5 cabins. And access to some of the best trout fishing on Spring River. These folks work hard to make this into a place for the trout angler to go. They don't have a lot of money to pay for the advertisement some of the big box stores do but rely and word of mouth the get the word out about them. So I'm doing my part LOL. I fish out of The Mammoth Spring Campground Every time I fish Spring River, Have stayed in their cabins and have had a great outing every time. Some of the best Fly Fishing on Spring River is right out of their campground. You can find them on FaceBook at Mammoth Spring Campground.

Hope them luck I know last season was hard with the economy, low water and heat. But with the help of the anglers I know they will be OK.

I hope you guy's don't think this is Spam It's not intended to be I just want to help some great folks out that help me when I fish this area.

Did the folks at the Mammoth Springs Canoe Rental sell that property? I camped there long ago before Sonny built his resort down river. The only downside to that place is the choo choo all night long.

Yes they bought it from them. As for the train running all night it worried me also but I have to say after staying a cabin I was surprised that it didn't bother me that much. The cabin's do block most of the sound. And about anywhere you stay on the East side of Spring River you have the train going by day & night. LOL. But the fact that this place is above all the Party Zone of the river makes up for it. I can take a few trains going by over loud rap music and yelling all night.

They are open all year and $50.00 a night and yes they have air and heat Microwave and small fridg fire pit. Public shower and bath rooms only steps form cabins. Children play area, and tackle /fly shop. This is not going to be the catch all fly shop but they will have a selection of the best flies & baits to catch the Spring River trout, soda, ice, snacks, here is their FB page
