Ed Shenk Trout Stream

Stocked Trout Streams Fly Fishing Report- September 12, 2017

Cress Bug and Murray's Shrimp
The rich springs that flow into these streams and the water just downstream of them presently hold great numbers of great cress bugs and shrimp. Big Stoney Creek downstream of Wakeman's Grove bridge and the Bullpasture have many of these areas. Since the streams are low and the trout are wary, I do best by fishing upstream dead drift from one hundred feet below them right up to the springs. Good flies are the Cress Bug size 14 and size 16 and Murray's Shrimp size 14.
