Slough Creek Drop Camp

Posted 06-14-2015 at 11:55 AM by troutfisher1

Can anyone provide me with some information regarding Slough Creek? I have reserved a campsight in near the top of the second meadow in late August. I am getting a drop camp and need some advice as I have never done this before. I have read all the stuff I can find on bear saftey and feel fairly confident if I follow the rules, I shouldn't have a problem. Here are my questions:

A blue line with Beth

It has been 8 straight days now that I have been fishing my favorite river, The St. Mary's river and having some unbelievable clients and some great fishing already.
