Spring River Report

Water levels are running at 372cfs and water clarity has been clear. The river is looking great and the trout have been on the bite. Y2k’s are the hot fly this last week. Really hitting it hard. And olive woollies and hopper dropper rigs have been fun to fish on some days. Not many hitting the hopper but that occasional trout coming up to hit the hopper is priceless. Got to have the dropper below the hopper. It is where you will get the most hits. I like a small nymph or small Y2k. Hot pink and white trout magnets have been hot this week. And to be honest hot pink trout magnets always catch trout. Fish just off the bottom below a trout magnet float. And works great on a fly rod for smallmouth on local creeks like the Myatt and South Fork. These smaller creeks that run into the Spring River are hot spots for catching smallmouth. Nice weather this week, get out and enjoy.
Tight lines and good luck,
Mark Crawford
