    Default info on Raven Fork

    Hi David,
    Over the last 6/7 yrs., my buddy and I have fished Raven Fork - we missed last year. The hike in is on a very rocky old road were the horses have made it a very difficult tread. We usually wear hiking boots with a backpack carrying our gear. The fishing will depend upon how agile you are. There is no good way that we found to go downstream of the campground. The boulders are huge but can be fished up high from however you can walk/wade upstream for quite aways. There is a hint of a trail on the west side but I've been told that there was a very good trail many years ago which went all the way to the "big pool" @ 3 forks.
    You can cross further up from the campground safely depending upon the water level. Be aware that this is bear country as I have seen several on Enloe Creek trail further west.
    I usually wear socks and a pr. of wading boots (forget the waders this time of year). We've had 30-50 "brookie" days and but also less than 10. I have used the typical assortment of Casada's Smokey flies and success will all @ different times.
    It's a special place but not for everybody and please do not go alone as this place is dangerous esp. with rising water. Good luck and please contact me if you need more specific info.

    I fished Raven Fork a couple of years ago after backpacking to McGee Springs campsite and doing the off trail bushwhack to Big Pool. we fished there and up the Right Fork. Had a blast! We stayed a 2nd night at McGee Springs and went home on day three.
