JUNE SUMMARY FOR MID ATLANTIC SPRING CREEKS



Water temperatures in spring creeks will be in the 60’s. The Sulphurs will kick into high gear around mid-June..


Sulphurs duns will appear about 8 pm. Around 8:30 pm ephemerrella rotunda spinners will appear over the riffles, there can be millions. Wait for the fish to start feeding then fish the feeding lanes below the riffles.

Have Pale Evening patterns in #16.


In the morning many anglers observe paraleptophlebia mollis and mistake them for tricos. They are unimportant to the angler.


In the daytime successful flies include Al's Rats and Griffith Gnats, Sulphur Nymphs, Ants, Craneflies, Hares Ears, Henryville Specials and Pheasant Tails.


In the evening use Pale Evening Duns, Sulphur patterns and Light Cahills.


Late June can bring the first tricos..
