Spring Creek Fever.....



Olive sitting on a Helios....


Nice Brown that Larry landed early in a riffle....



Water was a little bit higher than usual, but the fishing was on par...


World Class Sucker at Spring Creek....




After the rendezvous, Mike and I met Larry and his wife in State College. We found a place to stay and a good bite to eat at the Champs Sports Bar in town. It was a perfect place to grab a bite to eat since we fished for about four hours till dark before arriving at the hotel. We landed about a dozen fish that evening. I was having success on a Scud and black midge pattern.
The follow morning Larry, Mike, and I fished Benner Spring to try a few different spots in the morning. We did really well exploring some other spots that we had overlooked before on other trips. After lunch, we moved further down the creek to find if the Blue-Winged Olives were coming off. It was a cool day with some clouds, but they were not in full stride yet. We were able to find fish throughout the afternoon feeding in some dries. They wanted a #16 parahute olive or an adams in the same size. 

Mike has a good picture to post of a brown that I caught with Scuds crawling out of his mouth.  It was a sweet picture.
