Bear Creek

Latest Guide Report


Report by: Randy Hanner

Fishing conditions in Bear Creek were slow with warm water temperatures lowering feeding activity. Flows were at 50 cfs but the water temperature (forgot thermometer, seemed above 55) has driven fish towards the bottom of the river. Large afternoon caddis and pmd hatches were seen, however very few fish were feeding on the surface. While slow, a few brown trout were caught after switching to deeper rigs. Small, fast sinking nymphs did the trick to land some fish before noon, but activity went down even more in the middle of the day. The majority of takes were in swifter, deeper sections of the river, slower eddies and pools were less productive. Overall, the fishing is slow, especially with dry flies, but persistence in swifter water will lead to some fish.
