At the top is the confluence of Palmer and Lost Bottom Creek
Lost Bottom Creek:
Notice the footbridge that's part of the Palmer Creek Trail
And Lost Bottom Creek Brookie
A tiny Bow from Palmer, above the confluence.
And one last Brookie
So I then decided to hike back down,
A view of the creek from above
I still had some time left, so I decided to do some stream-bagging and went a fished a couple of holes on Pretty Hollow Creek, and managed one brookie, which I didn't photgraph. And then I decided to fish some more on Palmer Creek below the junction of Pretty Hollow Creek, and amazingly, caught a 7" brown. I knew they were in Cataloochie creek, but I hadn't heard of one that far up. I guess there aren't any barriers, but it still seemed strange...
