Jeff Murray Fishing Below A Spring

Stocked Trout Streams Fly Fishing Report- September 19, 2017

Cress Bug and Murray's Shrimp
If you watch the streams closely below incoming springs where the water is a foot to three feet deep, you can often actually spot some of the trout that are feeding on the natural cress bugs and shrimp. A tailing feeding action or discolored water flowing downstream from the trouts' feeding area easy signals to attract our attention. Cast a fly two feet above these feeding trout and watch him closely for his strike. My favorite flies are the Cress Bug size 14 and size 16 and Murray's Shrimp size 14. Good streams are Back Creek and Big Stoney Creek West of Edinburg.
