Saturday I fished the trait Fork starting around 8:30 or so. Much to my suprise there was hardly anyone else fishing up there, and most of thhee other people that came to fish got there mid afternoon. I started out down low, anf right from the start started catching decent bows and browns. I went with the trusty stimulator with a pheasant tail under it, almost all of the fish took the dropper. I fished the lower section for a while then decided I wanted to catch some brookies, So I drove up the road and parked near the new bridge that crosses the creek. The creek really gets tiny up there, but has amazing character...Undercut banks, root systems in soe of the pools, and nice little riffles. I switched to some smaller flies and did really well on the brookies, the biggest of which was about 7 inches.
Around 3 I figured I'd hit the trophy section and see if I could catch a monster to end the day. If you havent been to the trophy section in a while let me inform you...Its harder fishing right now... But not impossible. I caught about 8 "smaller fish" around 10 inches or so, one good one about 18 inches or so, and 2 absolute pigs, that must have gone about 24. Thank you to the fellow who let me borrow his net twice! Guess I need to start carrying a net on that river.. The bigger fish came from the whitewater that was around knee deep or so, and the smaller ones were just scattered around. The waater temp that far down reached 68 around 5 in thee pm or so.
