Latest Fishing Report


Stream: Valley Creek

Date of Update: 12/28/2018

Author: TCO Bryn Mawr Staff

Highlight: Valley is currently blown out from the rain this morning, but may be fishable this afternoon or tomorrow depending on where the water decides to settle at.

Stream Level: 381 CFS and rising at the moment

Water Temp: Low 40s

Clarity: Dirty

Fishing Overview: Streamers and worms will be a good bet as the water begins to drop. Once Valley clears again, nymphing with small mayfly and midge imitations will become your go to tactic again. Midges and BWO's will still get fish looking up and rising in the right conditions.

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 patterns, smaller flies usually produce more consistent action.

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


Hot Patterns: Zebra Midges 18-22
Pheasant Tails 16-22
Caddis larva 16-20
BWO Comparaduns 18-22
Scuds 16-20
CDC Pop Emerger 16-20
Parachute Adams 16-20
