    Default 10/03 Report

    I got off early today and decided I would go try to burn a few hours in the creek. I got to the Bradley Fork trail head at 330 and fished until 630. I brought approximately 30 fish to hand and had an absolute blast. The browns are ACTIVE. If you get a chance this weekend drop a #12BHPT 18 inches behind a fly and hold on. I coerced this big guy out from a stump on an undercut bank by twitching my dropper at the head of the undercut. My first thought was that I was hung until he took off down the hole and stripped line.2 holes up I got his twin brotherThose were at 450 and 5 oclock, then at 550 this beautiful bogger grabbed my nymph. Today was one of the better days I have ever had in the park and I wish I had a tape to get an accurate number on these fellas....but....That's not what it was about. I know anyone on the trail had to have heard me!!! I hope everyone has a little luck on the streams this weekend.

    Those are some pretty nice fish man! Posts like these aren't helping my anxiety of wanting to fish in the park this spring

    Can't believe I left that out. It was Bradley Fork I fished the same stretch I fished Saturday morning.

    Yeah, I "forget" where I catch them sometimes myself!
