Jakes Creek:
I tried a little something different today and headed to the elkmont area of the park. Because there were so many other people fishing I decided to do some small creek fishing and headed up Jakes Creek. I had an awesome day. I never even saw another angler. I caught most of the fish on a size 16 yellow stimulator and the first few on a gray sized 18 parachute adams. I ended up with 8 rainbows and 2 browns. As is the case with most places in the park there was a big stonefly hatch this evening so I think thats why I did so well on the stimulator.

West Prong "Little River":
Today I left work around 4:00 or so and headed to west prong. I caught around 12 rainbows most of them coming on a size 16 never sink caddis with a yellow body. The stonefly hatch wasn't as impressive as what it has been in the past but I still managed to do well.Today I left work around 4:00 or so and headed to west prong.

John, I checked out your website. The heck with pictures of fish and trees, where are the pictures of your "smokin hot girlfriend" (as you put it)....;)

Good job trying something new (Jakes Creek)...we all need to try new waters from time-to-time. It improves your skills. Glad you did well. Now about those pictures...:rolleyes:

PeteCz,
That's great! I started laughing immediately when I read your comments, partly in relief. It's good to know that I am not the only derelict out there. I clicked on Zimmerman's website to see pictures of the fish, but hit the "gallery" tab thinking, "let's see what this smokin hot girlfriend looks like".

I think this is the one you guys were looking forward to seeing. This picture was taken on a 90 degree day, hence the hot part.

John, pictures were neat. Did rather well during my 2 weeks of trout fishing in the park. Had to come back to Miss. and make a little pocket money. Return trip is not far away.
