    It looks like a great hole for sure, but it is the upper cascades in the picture ( near the head waters of Forney, above 6 and the lower part of the cascades ( the trail seems to cross between them) is the boundary for trout so the are supposedly no trout in Forney at and above the point in the picture. We stopped there for a break and to eat lunch on the way back up and watching the pool for th ebetter part of 45 min, we never saw any signs of fish, but we did see some large salamanders and big stick caddis larvae moving around.


    One thing we also forgot to mention... While hiking on the trail, coming around a bend between 70 and 69 we ran into a Grouse but it darted into the thick rhodo on one side of the trail before Jason could get a picture of it.

    I may go up there and poke around to see if I can pull one out of there.
