Spring River Report
Water levels are running at 375 cfs (350avg) and water clarity has been mostly clear. The river is looking great. Lots of bugs hatching. Bead head nymphs like a pheasant tail or hare’s ear in sizes 10-12 are working well for numbers. Catching some bigger trout on woollies in olive and brown. Hot pink trout magnets are always productive for catching trout and smallies on the Spring River.
