I went to Paint Creek on 11/29. It was decent at best. Yes ther are some big fish but the water is low and gin clear. These fish spook very easy. There are a couple holes that they're stocked in there like cattle...

Not much surface activity. On the deeper holes I have had success with a San Juan, an egg pattern, and streamers might work if the water isn't very clear. You can find some fish isolated and try some wet flys and some nymphs with a zebra midge dropper. One neat thing about Paint Creek is that it has alot of Horny Head. If you can break yourself from the cattle pens they are fun to catch and very agressive. However there are some big trout stocked in there.
