Near Bellefonte, the Spring Creek is a large spring creek with limestone base that has been gaining popularity among local fly fishermen. It is important to note that Spring Creek is a No-Kill Zone due to polution where it is not recommended to eat any of the fish. You can expect to find brown trout up to 14 inches long and some even longer.
Above the confluence with Cedar Run near Oak Hall, access to Spring Creek is limited due to posted no-trespassing. Downstream of Oak Hall to Houserville, the widening river offers excellent hatches. The best season is May through mid-Sep.
Below Houserville to the Benner Spring Hatchery, the fishing is the poorest due to polution.
Overall, Spring Creek is the 43rd most popular fly fishing river of all 49 fly fishing spots in Pennsylvania.
