The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.
|General Region||Centre County, PA|
|Specific Location||Spring Creek - started at Benner water ended below Paradis|
|Dates Fished||Friday 02/18|
|Time of Day||8 - 4|
|Fish Caught||Nine wild browns|
|Conditions & Hatches||Nice day, air was 52 degrees at 8:00 a.m. but didn't get any warmer than 57 degrees at 2:00. Wind got bad from noon to when I quit. No bugs and no rising fish. The Benner water is off color with virtually no clarity. Water below Paradise is clearer - there is more snow on the ground at the Benner water hence more melting.|
