Today I floated 9 miles of the Little River. Yes, I am exhausted! I started at 10:30 at the Park boundary and floated all the way back to the dam below Jarvis bridge. Way to much to properly fish in one day. There are alot of big rainbows (20"+) that have been stocked and they are spread out throughout the Townsend water. I went mainly to fish for Smallies so I only threw streamers all day. Caught probably 10 stockers mostly in the 16" range but wanted to get on down river to try out some new patterns I've been working on for the past few weeks. I spent too much time with those trout and didn't get out of Townsend water till allmost 3pm. I finally started catching a few smallies and ended up with 4 fish to the net, before I had to quit and run down to the takeout. I finally made it back to the vehicle around 7:30pm. I missed fishing so much good water but I saw lots of good fish (trout included). and I'm looking forward to doing it again. Just limit it to about 3 miles of the most productive areas next time!
Didn't take any picts. of the stockers but I shot a few of this Smallie. He measured out very close to 17".
