Marker Description: Trout - March produces tremendous Blue-Wing Olive and midge hatches. May and June, sulphurs and caddisflies. Summer stick with ants, beetles, crickets - terrestrials. A good crayfish fly pattern works well too. This is a limestone stream with lots of life.

In 1934, Spring Creek became the first specially managed quality fishing area in North America. In the 1970s the fish were declared too polluted to eat, a la Scarface. This lead to catch-and-release policy that has improved the fishery. You so polluted but not so polluted you can't spawn.
