collins creek- i can now mark it off my list of places to fish, at least for some time. went there the other day, upstream from the picnic area-what little I could hack and slash my way through. no fish. not much water. too much overgrowth, too many gnats and not enough water or fish.
on the way back, stopped along the kephart prong, I believe,one of the last stream pull offs before newfound gap. had a nice, quick go of it. saw a couple of really nice red-cheeked salamanders, saw fish swimming around some of the small pools and managed to find a couple of dumb brooks and 1 dumb rainbow. i love dumb trout...all in all, good day before work.
