My buddy Jeff came up on Friday evening and we headed down into upper Deep Creek, my second trip down there this week, but this was his first ever fly fishing effort. We hiked down much further than...

NC Report 9-24

I fished a small, low elevation stream on the NC side today that's home exclusively to rainbows. We got about a half inch of rain on Thursday night/Friday morning and I was a little concerned about...

That is an unusual looking fish. I'm kinda glad to see pure specks up there. And boy are there a lot of them. Great to see.

I was kinda wondering the same thing. One of the reasons I took that picture was because of the striking stripes on it. Unfortunately, the flash washed out some of the color. Would it help if I...

I have a paranoia when climbing over logs and around rocks. It's especially bad when I'm wading wet by myself. ;)

Upper Deep Creek - 9/22

I hiked into Deep Creek from 441 this morning. I was out the door pretty early and there were loads of turkeys & deer on the road through the park. It was 57 and pretty foggy when I got out of the...

9/21 in the park - NC

I bailed on a backpacking trip to Forney because I didn't want to hang around a wet camp by myself when a warm dry house (and rye) was available at Old Tom's place in...

Very light stocking has begun (at least in NC), especially above 3000 feet. It is not yet problematic, but I did catch a few leaves today (that weren't attached to trees). Fall is clearly...

I'm gonna make a run at Steeltrap Cr on Thursday, so I figured I might as well hoof it up to 69 for camp. It certainly seems the better site and gets me away from the horse traffic. I got out my 2...

Forney Creek Campsite Question

I'm headed into Forney Creek Wed-Friday next week and I'm planning on staying at either Jonas Creek (70) or Huggins (69) campsites. Huggins gets good mention in Kenneth Wise's book and no horses are...

I'm all about hijacking threads! It was a good mental exercise anyway, just imaging what it would be like to make that trip. ;) And imagination is probably where it will always stay.

But **** that's an attractive trip. Purely as a day trip because I would NEVER do anything against park regulations.

Long Backcountry Hike Options

Old Tom is currently on the Disabled List and may not finish his rehab assignment before the end of fall. As a result, I've got PTO, a heap of fitness and a serious kitchen pass to burn so I'm...

It probably needs to be said. To fish the bend you really need to be in pretty good shape. It is a long, hard wade, and as OT said, you have to keep wading until the trail comes back down to the...

I'd be happy to see them go as well. They just make such a mess of things. I'm with you on dogs in the park as well, but I'd really like to see more of the "old road" trails opened to bikes. ...

Cross country

I'm going to try to steer this one back to bushwhacking. That cross-country camping is even permitted is new to me. In Rocky Mtn NP that had cross-country zones and you could reserve the entire...

I've had zero luck fishing there, but it's an intimidating size for me when I'm used to fishing small streams. I could be wrong, but it seems to me to be awfully warm for trout, though it would...
