Stream: Valley Creek

Date of Update: 1/17/2022

Author: Bryn Mawr Staff

Highlight: Clearing from the rain/snow. Nighttime temps will slow things down a bit but midges will continue to hatch once the water drops.

Stream Level: 77 CFS

Water Temp: 38

Clarity: Clearing

Fishing Overview: Small thin bodied mayfly/midge nymphs (size 16-22) and small streamers will produce fish through the winter. If there are fish rising they are most likely taking midges or small blue winged olives (18-24)

Specifics and Tips: Keep a low profile and work your way upstream. Long leaders and 6x or 7x will be your best bet if you're casting to rising fish.

Blue Winged Olives (16-20)
