Big Spring - Latest Fishing Report

Stream: Big Spring

Date of Update: 8/8/2022

Author: TCO Boiling Springs Staff

Highlight: Hot and humid - look for terrestrial activity. Look for caddis in the evening.

Stream Level: steady

Water Temp: 56 degrees

Clarity: clear

Fishing Overview: Terrestrials are the ticket this time of year. Any fly that's black and about a size 12-14 will imitate an ant, beetle, or cricket. We're seeing quite a few caddis in the evening.

Specifics and Tips: Drifting sow bugs in the water column in the channels between beds of cress should produce some action. Don't hesitate to use a large ant pattern on top. Drift them under overhanging vegetation. Caddis are a good bet in the evening.

Hatches: Cress Bugs sz. 12-18
Sculpin 10-14
Ant sz. 12-16

Hot Patterns: Cress Bugs - sz. 12-18
Red Zebra Midges - sz. 18-20
