    Ive picked up fly fishing recently over this last year. Ive mostly fished for Trout out of state but I've finally gotten some time off work and I want to go to Hatchery Creek. Ive heard a lot of good things about this place and I was wondering if anyone has been there recently and if so how were the Trout biting? Im thinking about taking my fly rod and reel and just a spinning reel to fish. Anybody got any suggestions for lures or rigs for a fly or spinning reel for hatchery creek as well? Any info or help is very much appreciated!

    I haven't been in a few months. The guy who designed it/guides on it has a FB page he posts on. Just look for hatchery creek on FB.

    Last time I was there I caught them on a mini olive bead head bugger with a little flash then switched to nymphing under an indicator.

    If I was going to spin fish I'd use a very small rooster tail in white or yellow.

    I just read an article about Hatchery Creek earlier in the week. But I don't remember where I say it at. :(

    Check out Brad Redmon if you are on Facebook. He is the guy talked about above.

    I usually use very small flies there. 18-22s. Some of the best have been Pheasant tails, Zebra Midge and a kind of Psysho Midge thing I make ( 20 with a tiny red bead(shiny)with a collar of uv red and body of orange mylar. I think it looks like a very tiny egg. Fish with or without an indicator. I prefer wo. and some weight to get you down. Good Luck
