Picked up Tim Brookens at 5:00 am and headed for Spring Creek. The Tricos hatch is on!
We parked at Fly Fisherman’s paradise , walked upstream passed the no wading section and split up from there. We used 2 different tactics and both successful.
I fished the pools for rising fish sipping Tricos with a #28 midge and Tim fished the shallow riffles with a #12 Crackleback. We ended up with 17 fish between us. Tricos were done by 10:00.
We met back at the “Paradise” section for lunch by the “Spring”. Before Tim got back I got to meet with Joe Humphreys, Penn State fly fishing legend who just finished an interview session. Joe is 87 years old and still is an active fly fisherman and teacher. I watched him catch a fish. Impressive!
