Near the town of Spruce Creek, the Spruce Creek is a small limestone stream with cool yearround temperatures. It is known for its wild brown trout and for its prolific hatches of blue quips, tricos and blue winged olives along with the usual caddis.
Sadly, fly fishing the Spruce Creek can be challenging since there is very limited public access. There is one 0.5 mile Catch-and-Release Artificial Lures Only section for fly fishing located about a mile upstream of the town of Spruce Creek. This section can be access via SR45.
Overall, Spruce Creek is the 40th most popular fly fishing river of all 49 fly fishing spots in Pennsylvania.
