Sounds like you fished a similar area to where I have been on a couple of occasions. I too have heard about, and one time saw a few big fish. My boss used to fish there back in the mid 90s and said that it used to be a good place to take some good "fish ****" pictures (huge stockers).

I have also heard from several different people that paint creek is ravaged by poachers during the stocking months and that it isn't uncommon to see people with gill nets standing on the road above big pools.
