Default Re: Small stream Stories and Pictures;

I fished this creek yesterday.

Click the image to open in full size.

It's the only creek I've found in the whole darn state that isn't blown out due to the monster runoff we have had this year. The reason this creek is fishable is because it does not drain anything above 11,000 feet where most of the really big snow pack still exists. Still, this creek is flowing about 100 CFS when the normal flow this far into summer should be 15-20 CFS.

I fished for four hours and caught 15-20 brookies all 5-9 inches. I have fished this creek 2-3 times a year for four years, and have never caught anything but brookies and never one over 12 inches.

It's a fun creek to fish, and gets very little pressure since it's quite a ways from anywhere and there are lots of creeks with bigger fish not too far away.

This is my first attempt to post a picture. It looks OK on PREVIEW, hope it posts properly.

Chris
