Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Ben Turpin 's Tip of the Week
Fishing should be good throughout the creek and Brodhead watershed in general. Water levels are running about bank full and the bugs and the fish are becoming more active. There are a few may flies hatching but nymphing has still been the most productive type of fishing.
