Default Re: Big Hunting Creek, MD?

Well I was flying blind, but I'll offer a report for the benefit of the community.

Big Hunting was a lot of fun. Beautiful stream with crystal-clear water. It was flowing hard from all the recent rain, but it didn't hamper our fishing. I had success with an emerger pushed deep into the pools. Even though there were decent hatches going on, there was no surface action at all. Landed several 10" rainbows on my 2wt. My only complaint: there is a lot of traffic noise from the road that parallels the river.

Also went over to Owens Creek. Wasn't enamored with it at all. Didn't get any action whatsoever and the water didn't appear to have nearly the amount and variety of holes and runs that the Hunting has. Maybe we were just in the wrong section (between the two railroad bridges).
