    Default Just Another Outing in Southeast Idaho - Spring Creekin'

    My son, his best buddy and I spent the day on our favorite spring creek Saturday and we had a blast. We christened the day "the 20-inch plus day" as we landed more than a dozen brown trout at or over twenty-inches. Most were caught using the parasol method trailing a bead-head Pheasant-tail nymph and an amber scud. The majority took the PT nymph with a fair amount taking the scud.

    The weather was bitter cold and it snowed hard as we drove to our destination. About the time we started fishing the snow stopped, but it remained very, very cold for the remainder of the day, even when the sun made a showing. We made a killing and had a great time. This is only the second time I've fished this spring this late in December as the road is usually closed to motorized travel this late in the season. It will most surely be my last time to my beloved spring this year - but we went out with a bang!

    Here are the pics:

























    It was a day to remember!

    Best Fishes,

    If I had a day like that on the local spring creek, I might just stop fishing as it would likely never be eclipsed I'll meet you guys out there next year this time then?

    I really don't know how you stomach going out and fishing water like that, catching awesome browns! I know its got to be really tough.

    Nice writeup Kelly! By the looks of those pictures, it was a day to remember for a long time. And a COLD one at that. Beautiful fish, beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks all for your comments. Now, for those of you who thought this was cold, take a look at the following pics from yesterday (just two days after we were there) when my son and another friend hit the same spring. They were the only persons on the road in and out. They had a pretty good day, but the temps were even more grueling than Saturday.

    Now this is what cold-weather flyfishing looks like!



















    Man, what a difference two days makes:

    Its been really warm where I've been lately. Only problem is, there are no trout.

    I'd gladly trade places to freeze my ass off. No doubt about it. Great looking water. First thing Id do is make a snow angel. Then I'd dive in.
