Congrats, I am jealous. It is in the mid 40s today and would loooovve to get the first fish of 2012 to hand soon!

That's a pretty big river, I am willing to bet that is not the only fish it's size in there. Is it purely a put and take or are there some fish that reproduce in the stream?

I used the chesty mount for the gopro, it sits nice between the vest. I tryed the head mount last year and its ok, this way you see more. to note the dark segment of the video I was filming with my clip on polerized glasses over the lense, and I soon to get the better under water housing to get some clear creek footage.

The creek is stocked with trout at the park a in october for the c/r season till march, which I think they will stock it again. by mid summer the water temps get to high most trout will die off, but Im sure some find spring fed pools. this big one I caught I think was an escapee from a hatchery a few miles up stream of the park.. not sure how else to explain it. the creek at this park is neat in the fact there is 7 or so miles of creek in the park and it ends in to ohio river, the last 3 miles of the creek are deep and slower moving, but hard to wade fish due to deep water and steep banks. The water level changes fairly fast with the rain, but it can clear out fast. early last year before the park was reopened to the public when we had alot of flooding and the ohio river was really high, the creek was 30+ feet higher then normal filling back 5 miles up river, it was like a silt lake. more info on the park here.

I was able to get in early while I was rebuilding the mtb trails to get ready for park opening in May.

AJ, just let me know when you wanna go.
