There ARE a lot of twenty inch browns in the Park. Probably as many as they're always have been given fluctuations due to drought or MEGA floods. As I've "matured" (at least in years), I find...

Straight Fork Looking Rough

I had not heard of the major slide that occurred. So after reading these posts, I went back and looked at my statistics for the past few years. My catch rates and sizes improved from 2011-2014 each...

Once upon a time, Rangers were known to hide and even climb trees with binoculars to watch for illegal fishing. They were known as "possum cops". When I was 15, I heard a crash in the woods as I...

If I use anything at all, I use a tiny piece of twist-on adhesive yellow indicator. I keep it off the water & use it to help me see my line twitch. Last Saturday, a rainbow jumped 2 feet out of the...

A lot of good suggestions.....

Nearby

Have you tried Big Creek? If you go, walk upstream about 1.5 miles and start at the Midnight Hole. A lot of 7-9" rainbows that'll take pretty much any nymph. The water is typically gin clear, so...
