Default Big Pine Trout Farm

I'm headed to Big Pine the middle of July. Really looking forward to my trip. Anyone here know of any flies I shouldn't leave without? Also how is the fishing? I would love to leave there with a citation. Thanks for all the help!

Scott,

First things first, welcome to the Fly Fishing Forum. Second things second, what 'Big Pine' are you talking about? I grew up in North Central PA. and know only one Big Pine. I do not know what you mean by a citation either.l

Hi Scott,

I thought you were talking about Big Pine Creek of PA. I do not know anything about your destination but I'm sure that the proprietors at the place can advise you on what to bring.

Do you not trout fish the streams along the Blue Ridge Parkway? Some require a hike but I found good fishing down there.

why would you want a trout citation from a fed trout, no glory there. Now catching one in a wild stream would be good. that place has to feed the fish..

..... I use to work at a pay-to-fish place. The folks who payed to fish there got really jazzed about those oversized trout. We had regulars who fished there every weekend. One guy would take a fish home to mount a few times each season.(don't know where he put them all )

I fished there daily myself and to me a 26 inch "fish in a barrel" wasn't nearly as rewarding as catching a 9 inch "trophy'' brookie in the tiny brook across the street from my house

that's why there's chocolate and vanilla.

Do you really get a sense of accomplishment by catching a fed trout, in a private pond? That's like shooting a huge deer that is kept in a fence enclosed pasture! Sorry if I sound rude, cause I don't mean to be; but a person truly feels accomplishment by working hard for it. Not for just showing up!
