Default Back from 6 Days 5 nights at Upper Hazel

Just got back from spending the week at upper Hazel Creek with a Friend David Stevens and my brother Colby. Thought I would share a few pictures from our trip that I hope you enjoy.



Two Brothers working thier way upstream. This was Sunday morning before all the rains were suppose to move in so we were in a hurry to make it to campsite 82 before the rains started.



Ok, its starting to get uphill hiking and we are really feeling it, I think I can, I think I can. How much farther is it to #82?, Are we there yet!



Sunday afternoon and we made it to # 82, my Brother setting up his Hammock. Notice how close to the stream he is. I remember him telling me "This looks like a good Site".



Monday Morning after all the rain. You notice my brothers Hammock is not there anymore, We had to move it about 3:00 in the morning during all the rain. Only a brother



The fishing ended up being really great. Even with all the rains we were high enough that the waters cleared out quickly. Mostly fished upstream of the campsite but had one really good day fishing downstream from camp. We did not fish downstream of camp until our last day but the water was good and the fishing was great.


The fishing this day was best between Walker and Proctor. A long day fishing and hiking upstream.

All three days fishing we caught the Slam, Brook, Brown and Rainbows you cant beat that. With the high waters we mostly used nymphs and some double beads when the water was high.

Like most of our trips it will take a week or two at work to heal up all the cuts, bruises and sore muscles, its rough getting old and having this much fun.

Looks like a lot of fun. I recently returned from a few nights at #83 and we also had a blast.

#82 is about 9 miles in, right? The 6 miles to #83 was enough for me.

Wow! The water really came up on you guys. Glad you had a fun, safe trip. That goes to show that even with rain, it's better to be in the woods than not!

Thumbs up

Looks like the average size fish you guys caught and cooked up was atleast 10 inches or better. Nice!

Now that's what I like to see. A great trip report with some fish on the grill, and no one screaming and whining about it.

I bet he was nervous all night hearing that water. Did he have a flashlight with him? I bet if he did he peeked out at the water every 10 minutes! I know I would have. LOL
