Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for Spring Creek, Pennsylvania
This is a limestone spring creek which means that even though it is small in many places, it
still contains some large brown trout. Although it may appear that a 2 weight fly outfit would
work just fine, you don't want to hook a good trout and lose it because your tackle was just too
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight, weight forward floating fly line for most of the fly-fishing.
Most all of your fishing should be done using small flies but you should also be equipped to
fish small streamers and larger terrestrial flies. A six weight floating fly line may be desired for
fishing small streamers and larger nymphs.
You should have a fly rod for the above line sizes you choose to use. The rods should be nine
feet in length. A moderately fast to fast action would be our recommendation.
The reel for either of the three rods should have a good drag. You don't want to hang a large
trout and loose it because of a lousy drag.
You should use at least a 7 12 foot leader anywhere and anytime on Spring Creek. A twelve
foot length and even longer may be wise in some situations. You should have them in sizes
ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies such as midges.
Carry extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
You will need waders in most all the places you will want to fish. We prefer the breathable type.
Felt soles would be our first choice. The new rubber soles may work well. We haven't tried
them on Spring Creek yet.
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have specific imitations of all the major
insect species in Spring Creek in all stages of life along with the terrestrials, crustaceans and
baitfish. We hope you give them a try. They are used by many anglers that fish Spring Creek
on a regular basis.
