    Default Lynn Camp

    The fishing at Lynn Camp Prong was good this morning. My brother and I took 27 Rainbows between us. The last spot we fished I caught a small Brookie. The Brook was only 4 or 5 inches. We caught a couple of fish around 8 inches. The rest of the fish were between 4 to 7 inches. I hooked fish on a Adam and a Pheasant Tail Nymph as a dropper. My brother took his fish on a Adam also. The flies ranged between a 10 to 14 in size.
    At the end of the day when we checked our fish in there was a fellow in front of us who had 50 fish in his creel. He told us he caught his fish on small black nymphs and small stone flies. This guy had some nice fish, several in the 7 to 8 inch range. He also stated the reason he caught these fish was due to getting in front of us.
    Other than the guy at the check in tent we seen a couple of people fishing and a couple of others on their way up the creek to start fishing. I thought that this creek would have more people fishing.
    All in all we had a great day of fishing.
    Also, I would like to thank the people for the info on the one day permit.
    Thanks...

    Bill

    May God Bless You...

    Good day for fishing behind someone, glad they didn't have lockjaw. That is a good fishery and should be an even better one once it's a all spec stream.

    By the way Lee, what was all that about??

    I'll hazard a guess - perhaps it was directed at the "huddled masses" heading upstream, zebco in hand. Last week, when we were leaving, there was a whole truckload of young guys, definitely not dressed in "subdued" clothes. I think it is just the nature of our sport to feel more than a twinge of superiority, perhaps even snobbishness - after all, just the fact that we choose to fish this way implies a greater effort expended. However, I temper such thoughts with: 1. They have as much right to fish these streams, provided they follow the rules and 2. They probably won't catch anything, anyway, given their gear is probably way too heavy. The skitterishness of these wild fish is a great equalizer.

    Comments like that should be kept to yourself. Nothing was ever stated about a spinning rod or bait fishing, or anything else.....perhaps it was directed at the total of fish that were kept but maybe they need to read a bit and see there is no creel limit on rainbows...you never know when "redneck fools" are going to give you 15 or 20 flies and put you on some great fishing....Ask a couple guys from Kentucky that ended a week long trip into Cataloochee on a great note because of those "redneck fools" that were camping next to them

    That's why I said it was a guess...We participated in the first day of the fishout, and I had never seen so many spincast rigs in the park before - again, they have as much right to the water as me, but I couldn't help thinking they were going to have a tough time catching anything with 12lb test.

    Frankly, the whole experience was a little strange for me. I don't mind keeping a few fish for the table, but it felt a bit uncomfortable knowing I had to dispatch a 4inch fish, that I had no choice. I'm glad it isn't an everyday situation.

    Also, if I was fishing Cosby, or one of the other streams I frequent, and I saw an old-timer with a long cane pole, I would probably follow him to learn some pointers; I've heard that some locals can be deadly with a cane pole and a fly.
