Yellow Breeches Creek (Cumberland County) – Trout were chasing
Woolly Buggers in clear, chilly water earlier this month. Both the
main stem and the short spring creek between main stem and the
Children’s Lake in Boiling Springs were low and clear. Sculpins are
present on the creek. Various color midges hatch year around, and
trout feed on the adult and larval stages.  Cressbugs and scuds
wash in from the Children’s Lake to the run connecting it to the
main stem but are less present in the main stem. Crayfish can be
found under rocks and gravel.

Big Spring Creek (Cumberland County) – Water in the
catch-and-release, fly-fishing-only section has been clear in
recent weeks, with water temperatures in the low to mid-50s. Nice
numbers of stream-bred rainbows have been reported along with the
occasional brook trout. Brookies are more concentrated in and
downstream of “the Ditch.” Brown trout have become rare. Midges
hatch year-round, with trout feeding on both the adult and larval
stages.
