The Birch Creek Family Area above Lone Pine is a great choice to take a youngster, anyone new to fly fishing, or to try out that light weight fly rod. Right now the creek is in near perfect shape. It’s high country water, so fish (rainbows & brookies) and insects do not become active until mid day. Then look for caddis, small stoneflies, and BWOs to become active and for fish to respond. Small bead head nymphs, the almost forgotten peacock wooly worm, dry attractors, yellow sally patterns, or life cycle patterns for caddis and BWOs are just the ticket. Come to the shop for more information on this great little stream.
