May Fishing Report: Bear Creek

Ivan Orsic / May 20, 2014

Flows are currently rising on bear creek with current flows above 115. When I started fishing the creek on Sunday the water was at 100 cfs around 3:00 PM and slowly dropped to 94 cfs as I was leaving around 7:00 PM. Water clarity was a little murky when I first started but appeared to improve as the afternoon continued. For the latest bear creek flows: click here

The fishing was slow but I was able to catch quite a few sticks as I adjusted my weight. My only bite of the day happened around 5:00 pm in the evening, and I just didn’t set quickly enough. On this trip, I opted to leave my waders at home and used a pair of thick Thorlo socks combined with the new Simms Vapor Boots. Needless to say, I will definetly be adding a pair of Simms Guard Socks to my fishing gear before the Summer wet wading season. Later this week I'm going to try my luck again exploring Corwina park and Bear Creek canyon, stay connected for future reports.

The creek flow is currently slightly above the 26 year median on the USGS website which is to be expected for the amount of snow we received this winter. With the higher flows, I suspect that the fishing will improve/maintain over the next couple of days.
