6/5/14 Brook trout
 
After driving a couple miles on a gravel road I got to the trailhead and hiked a mile and a half up to where a stream flows into the main river. From there I started fishing the tributary upstream. When I caught fish in the first three pools I knew it was going to be a good day. One pool I fished (that wasn't that big) I caught five out of it and missed a sixth! I did catch one rainbow that was suprisingly large for a stream this size but he flopped away before I could take a picture.

I took a break on the hike out and caught this last fish in the main stream. This was one of the days where you completely lose count! Better yet I caught every single one on a dry fly. I definitely need to make a return trip to this stream.

I started with a neversink caddis but quickly lost it. I changed to a parachute adams and stuck with it for the rest of the day.

Thanks for posting! Keep the posts coming.:biggrin:

I thought I knew right where you were fishing, then the Rainbow threw me off. Then I'm pretty sure I figured it out.

If it's where I think it is, those first set of pools are truly awesome;)
Where you on the bigger or smaller tributary after the hike? And what day did you fish?

If you were on the bigger tributary, that's where Nathan and I fished Friday. The water level seemed to recover a bit after the rain on Thursday. We saw Boot prints in a few sandy places that had been partially washed out from the rain but were probably from Tues or Wed. If you were on the smaller trib ignore the last part:rolleyes:

Those weren't my boot prints. I fished the smaller tributary on Thursday.

Did you get rained on? Sometimes the rain will REALLY turn the fish on.
I planned to fish Thursday, but bailed after watching the weather:redface:

Nope it didn't rain at all while I was fishing but it was very cloudy. I was there from like 9 until 3. I did hit some heavy rain driving through Knoxville on my way home.

Sweet! Gotta love it when you miss the weather.:biggrin:

Was the new bridge up to par? I haven't walked up that way to look but they had the turnaround looking like a wood chip factory so it looks like some time was put into it.
