Thought I would try to post some pics since as the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words"! [img][/img]
The fishing can be pretty good on the stream. The rainbow are wild steelhead, spawned in the creek, migrating to the lake where they grow. They come back in the winter to spawn. They are gone usually by the 1st of April.
Fall and winter though you never know when you might stick a nice fish, it happens almost every time I fish from December - February. The browns are there too but they are as hard to catch here as in the Smokies. Once in a while though........
I have more of these pics, 15-19" fish are really pretty common in the winter.
