    Default Middle Prong 6/28/09

    Hey all me and the wife had to be in Seymour this weekend so we decided to hit the mplp aka Greenbriar above the Ranger station. We started out a bit below the Ramsey Cascade trailhead and she got a nice rainbow on a single hook rooster...I had a bunch of good strikes but couldnt hook up......Then move up river and she ended up with 6-8 bows and I ended up with 2 bows,,,,no brookies though.... It was great to do a little creek fishing but man ive got to get a creek rod,,,,,I only hung up a couple times with my 8.6ft tailwater rod....I got all mine on size 14 para adams and had a few hits on a stimulator.....Oh yeah and we ran up on a snake too,,,,couldnt tell if it was a copperhead,,,,what do you all think?

    Glad you got into a few fish wynnman. Greenbriar above the trailhead is a beautiful place, especially where the stream veers away from the trail.

    Glad you were able to fool a few. That snake is just a watersnake and completely harmless but that's sometimes hard to remember when you almost step on one or something... I've done the snake dance many times in my life only to discover one of those pesky watersnakes...

    I love that section of stream, just below Ramsey is where I caught my first brook trout in the Smokies.

    As for the snake, it appears to be a common water snake (Nerodia sipedon sp.). The dark bands on the copperhead are hourglass-shaped, with the narrow area of the bands runnings along the spine.

    Copied this info off a site. I guess it still wouldn't be any fun to get nailed by one.


    Warning All water snakes in the genus Nerodia will bite if harassed. Their bite is not venomous. The Common will strike repeatedly, and wounds caused by the bite will bleed profusely because of the anticoagulant quality of the snake's saliva.
