Re: Fishing in Medicine Bow National Forest
I've never fished French Creek, but those who have seem to indicate that its your standard stream fishing where a 12 inch fish might be your best fish of the day. The plus is you normally never encounter any crowds.
I've fished the Douglas Creek, directly below Rob Roy reservoir, and caught many a small brookie, but again, the stream isn't big enough there to carry the larger sized fish. On the otherhand, where the Douglas pours into the N. Platte on the other side of the mountains, there you can catch some nice fish, and good numbers too. Also, the causeway below Rob Roy is fun to fish, and I've caught some 15 inch rainbows out of there.
If you're up for a drive, you can head over the scenic highway to Encampment River.
