Spring Creek

The numbers are excellent here, but very few large fish showing in the net. This is perhaps the most consistent moving water fishery in the Eastern Sierra currently. Dry/dropper bead head combo's with a Stimulator "on-a-top" #14-16, and PT or olive zebra #16-20 as the nymph. From this point on streamer fishing along the deeper side or undercut banks will only get better. Spruce-a-Bu's and Loebergs #8-10. Use a light to moderate sinking tip line and use the "dip and strip" method to get err' done!

SD guide Doug R got the Smith clan into a bunch of scrappy rainbows on a recent trip. The wet wading has been great this season here.
