|Highlight:||Spring Creek is in great shape. Olives and midges dominate the hatches upstream from Paradise, Grannom caddis are done and have been replaced by tan caddis and crane flies. Sulphurs are right around the corner, expect to see them within a week.
|Stream Level:||Spring is 95 cfs at Axemann, median is 131 cfs
|Water Temp:||low 50's
|Fishing Overview:||Olives, midges, and tan caddis are around and fish have moved into feeding lanes and looking up. Fish have been readily taking nymphs and caddis pupa throughout the day while bugs are moving.
|Specifics and Tips:||Get your nymphs down and try something with either a orange or green hot spot, often in colder water fish will react to a bit of color. Fish dries in the riffles as fish will feed heavy in those prime lanes.
