Latest Fishing Report


Stream: Valley Creek

Date of Update: 8/16/2018

Author: TCO Bryn Mawr Staff

Highlight: The water has dropped back to a great level after the recent rains. Fish early if you can, things will slow down around midday with the heat. The evenings have been providing some good opportunities as well on cooler days.

Stream Level: 44.1 cfs

Water Temp: Mid 60's

Clarity: Clear

Fishing Overview: Caddis and midges are making up the majority of the available food right now. BWOs will still hatch on the right day with some cloud cover. Ants and beetles can be key patterns this time of year. 5X or 6X fluorocarbon for sub-surface fishing is always a plus.

Specifics and Tips: Keep a low profile and work your way upstream. Long leaders and 6x will be your best bet if you're casting to rising fish. While fish will certainly eat some bigger terrestrials, smaller flies usual produce more consistent action.

Hatches: Caddis (16-20)
Blue Wing Olives (18-24)
Midges (18-24)
Assorted Terrestrials (12-18)
