Well, I caught 9 fish from 9 to 14 inches. I had heard of much larger fish in there, but never even got a glimpse of one. The stream was much smaller than I was expecting. It is a beautiful stream, very shallow in most places. I did not expect it to be 10 degrees colder and still have 6 solid inches of snow there either. Made for a slow and cold start. A local guide still swears there are BIG fish in there. Maybe I did not go up far enough or something. I came in from HWY107 via gravel road then went upstream. Fished different stretches from the fishing pond all the way to a big intersection where the stream split. Not what I expected, but I caught some good looking fish and was not at work. Hard to beat that. If anyone knows I went the wrong way or wrong place let me know.
