Stream: Big Spring

Date of Update: 1/19/2022

Author: TCO Boiling Springs Staff

Highlight: Looks like the snow and very cold temps will be around for a while, so its a great time for some winter midge action. Most action, though, will be subsurface.

Stream Level: steady

Water Temp: 56 degrees

Clarity: clear

Fishing Overview: Small nymphs and cress bugs will always work on the spring creeks.

Specifics and Tips: Drifting sow bugs in the water column in the channels between beds of cress should produce some action. Try stripping a small sculpin pattern past cress beds.
