About:

Spring Run has always been a miss for me, I really have never experienced such a skunking in my life in regards to one stream. What infuriates me is to watch a fish rise right where they are supposed to rise, and then them not hitting anything. What is even more infuriating is that everyone swears by this stream, how awesome it is, that it is where the monsters come to play, yet I have yet to even get a bite.

Ok with that being said; this spring stream is simply beautiful. The area around it is well maintained, and there is hardly anyone there when I have been there. It has some very long deep runs that you see in spring fed streams, some very deep holes, and a lot of vegetation to contend with. Other than that fish it like you would any other spring creek and hope for the best.

Honestly I would not have anything bad to say about this stream, and I still recommend it, but just be prepared for a skunking. Hopefully one day I will catch one of the monsters there that I have personally seen.

***Side Note: I have only been here when it was very skinny water***

Additional Notes: 

There is a parking lot located at the stream.
