Bear Creek River Report

Bear Creek River Report


Bear Creek has been a good choice, and to avoid the crowds we recommend the smaller pulloffs. Water temps are falling despite the lower flows. Fish will be holding in depper pockets and pools. A dry dropper is a good choice to avaoid spooking fish.


For dries, use a Chubby Cricket, CDC Comparadun in BWO, Big Boned Caddis, PMX, Tail Water Midge, H&C Variant, Baby Boy Hopper, High Vis Midge, AR's PMD and BWO, and a Griffith's Gnat.


For nymphs use a RS-2, FRA Frenchie, Spanish Bullet, Tag Nymph, Prince Nymph, Copper John, Zebra Midge, Spanish Perdigon, and a Rainbow Warrior.
