Mossy Creek Fly Fishing Forecast 2/21/2022
Andy brings us this weeks forecast. You wouldn't know it was February today. It is sunny and about 65 degrees outside. However we do have some more cold weather on the way by the weekend. We are also looking at quite a bit of rain and wind this week starting Tuesday and running into Friday. Our local waters are flowing at or below average flows at the moment. Fishing has been quite good but might change with the large frontal boundary approaching. We will see winds upward and over 20mph on Tuesday but should normalize Wednesday. Brook trout fishing has been great. Attractor dry flies will continue to fish well as water temps warm up over the next few weeks. In the meantime size 10 streamers and large attractor nymphs are working well. Be sure to have some heavy tungsten flies or take some split shot along with you as water volumes will spike this week with the rain. Streamer fishing continues to dominate on the spring creeks. Sculpin patterns and crayfish fished along the bottom are sticking some very large fish. Keep an eye out for some caddis popping the first few weeks of March. Fish will generally chase these bugs down and eat them ravenously. If you see aggressive surface action it could be a fish after an emerging caddis. Mossy Creek, Beaver Creek, Buffalo Creek, Spring Run, and upper South should fish well during periods of high water when other streams are flooding. We caught a few musky in this period of stable waterflow on the Shenandoah but we anticipate high water starting Wednesday and lasting well into next week if we get the rain forecasted.
