The Lower Mountain Fork
 
I was able to sneak away from work and class this week and caught a few fish, enjoy! Mix of different fly's. Fish didn't seem all that active, but with nice weather I stayed with it and had a nice time.

Nice fish Goldeneye, but I didn't see any pics from below re-reg dam? Do you ever fish that section? There is an old road that you should explore someday, find a weyerhaeuser logging road map and you can drive right up to the cliff just opposite the restaurant in the park...:D

UGH!!!! you had to post this hahaha, I am probably going to make my way down there in a few weeks. I still need to buy my permit to fish in AK, but that is a quick website visit.

I will fish below the re-reg dam a few times during November and December, but for the most part I'll park and start fishing right below the tail water dam. I like to fish all the way down to the low bridge and all the way back up. One of my favorite places to fish is at the falls in early summer. If you know how to get there it is some of the best fishing on the Mountain Fork, I caught a very small Pike there last year, maybe 6 inches long. I try to stay away from all the tourist if I can. My grandfather was the president of the Weyerhauser Southern Timberlands Unit along the Kiamichi Range; I have maps that most people don't know exist and access to a lot of private land. There isn't an access point that I don't know about, I think. :D

Indian petroglyphs, burial mounds never touched by white man, caves so large they held dances in the 1800's but now forgotten, spanish silver mines, stone cairns with meanings forever lost, patches of ginseng never harvested and a cold spring creek that can support trout all year. A lot of history in those mountains not found on any map. ;)

All that sunshine and clear running water makes for good viewing for this ice bound fly fisher. It's great that you shared these pictures!

Thanks!

I bet the view in Alaska never gets old. A trip to Valdez and Island X are on my bucket list.

March browns should start showing up this time of year there. I had an epic day there a couple years ago fishing a march brown dry all day, my best day ever with a dry fly.

Re: The Lower Mountain Fork
 
Would someone please PM me a couple of places off the beaten path to fly fish on the LMF. I like to hike so a good walk is fine. I am strictly catch and release. I would appreciate details on how to get to a few new spots. Thanks in advance. I will be there in less than a month.
