    Default Good Start To The New Year...

    My friend Gary called me Monday afternoon and asked if I was interested in hitting Elk Creek in PA. After thinking about it for a great deal of time; I think it was about a half second, I said, "When are we leaving?" We left Gary's house after our other buddy Jim got off work and made the drive over.

    When we got geared up it was about 35 degrees, the water had that perfect green tint; and there was no one in site as we headed to the water.

    There were'nt a lot of fish, but enough to keep three happy steelheaders entertained...

    This was the first one I landed...


    The weather was an unexpected treat; two weeks ago everything was locked up tight and I was thinking the only fishing I'd be doing was through the ice. Later in the day the wind started picking up, and we started to get some snow, but overall it was a great day.

    One of my favorite places on Elk Creek...


    The weather reports aren't looking good, I think we'll be locked back up soon; glad we were able to get a good day in...

    It looks like a very adequate winter fix. Let's hope we get a few thaws between now and march to keep me from going nuts.

    How was the fishing overall? I am thinking of making another trip up if the creeks are open. Fish numbers have been low all year for the most part. I was hoping with the later smows and rain we had that those would increase.

    There was enough fish to keep us happy, nothing like you'll see in March and April...

    Nice one Dan,

    I always enjoy seeing pictures of places I used to fish at down your way. On Elk Creek I will trade low numbers of fish for low numbers of fishermen and day

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Alright Dan! A month without a fish is a tough month.

    Ard, we saw three other fishermen all day, wish Elk was like that more often...
