    Default Raven Fork Catch and Release(Trophy) Section Today

    I have worked all night and am getting ready to run over to Cherokee and try to land a monster. I will either get on here later and post some good pics of a big fish, or I will get on here later with plenty of prefabricated excuses about the water temp, the weather, the crowd of people, or someting else I usually say when I just flat out can't catch a dang fish.

    Well I caught twelve out of the catch and release section. 14 if you count the 2 I caught on a Dave's Hopper I threw out when two guys from the school across the road came over and threw in a bunch of biscuits that the trout were eating like crazy. I just threw the hopper in the middle of the bread crumbs and waited for the line totighten, but I told the guys I had to go because that was cheating. Biggest was a 16 inch rainbow, but I only took pics of the brookies and a brown. I will put up some pics in a few minutes.

    3rd fish of the day

    Another Brookie. They loved the ugly streamer I tied from just peacock herl and white bucktail


    And here is my only Brown of the day. 3rd brown ever for me.

    I didn't take any rainbow pics but caught several in 14 inch range. Still want to hook one of those huge ones though

    Thanks guys. I tried double nymphs, and I tries streamers, but I did best when I used a tungsten head prince with a white bucktail streamer about a foot befind it. The biggest rainbow took a tungsten hotwire prince, a couple rainbows took the normal tunsten prince, but the brookies, the brown, and most of the bows took the streamer and they took it hard. If you look back a few days I posted some pics of a golden I caught over there, and it took the same streamer. I just started tying flies a month ago, and it is a streamer I tied. Not sure what it is called, but it looks similar to a Mickey Finn streamer except it is white instead of yellow. If the water stays fishable I am going back Thursday.
