Bear Creek River Report

Bear Creek River Report


Flows are back up a bit, but not by a whole lot so continue keep a eye on water temps. As per usual, the smaller pulloffs will produce better than the bigger more well known parks and pulloffs. You will also encounter less dogs and people in the water as well on those. Current hatches are caddis, BWO, PMD, and midges.


For dries, use a Micro Chubby, AR's BWO, Superman Caddis,Tickle Cripple in PMD, Parachute Adams, Foam Run Caddis, Chubby Chernobyl, Butt Head, Rosenbauer's Para Bettle, and a Hippy Stomper.


For subsurface presentation use a Tung Wonder Nymph in PMD, Panty Dropper in PMD, Bead Head Prince, Aero Baetis, Peacock Nymph, BH Electric Rock Worm, Frenchie, Juju Baetis, Zebra Midge, Crust Nymph, and a RS-2.
