Stocked Trout Streams Fly Fishing Report - May 30, 2019

Posted by Harry Murray on

Recommended Flies: Back Creek and Big Stoney both have excellent sulphur mayfly hatches. It can be difficult to discern if the trout are taking the adult dry fly or the sulphur nymph just below the surface of the stream. A good way to fish this hatch is to fish a Murray's Sulphur Dry size 16 on a Classic 7 1/2ft 6X Leader with a Murray's Sulphur Nymph size 16 on a 3ft mono dropper below it. 

 Stream Conditions:  All of the local stocked trout streams and delayed harvest areas including Passage Creek (Fort Valley), Mill Creek (Mount Jackson) and Big Stoney Creek (Edinburg) are at perfect water levels and clear.

Recommended Gear: I am using a 5X Leader with a 7 1/2ft to 9ft fly rod with a 4 to 6 weight fly line.
