    Default FOOD SOURCES ON SPRING CREEKS (part 8) - EOTG - Apr 21, 2014

    FOOD SOURCES ON SPRING CREEKS (part 8 )
    Because spring creek waters are clear and rich in nutrition, sculpin and other types of minnows inhabit the stream in great numbers. Hence they are one of the more important food sources for trout in spring creeks. These are not the type of food that is consider standard spring creek fare, but using flies that imitate these small minnows will produce some surprising results.

    When I saw the pictures of the sculpins, I immediately thought of the Pine Squirrel Cheater, which I use on almost every trout trip. I tie mine on a size 10 jig hook to bump the bottom.
    Here is a link, I'm sure the flies mentioned would be a great imitation, I just thought I would add this pattern to the discussion.
