Default 6/27/09 big creek-cosby creek

my dad and i went yesterday planning to go to the clinch but the water was running so we went to cosby and n.c. we got to big creek at about 1 in the afternoon fished untill about 4 some very small bugs were hatching but nothing was taking on top so i fished bottom with a bhpt #16 and a shopvac its a montana fly but it works well for me by 4 o`clock i had caught 6 bows the biggest was 10". then we decided to take a trip to cosby creek and fish until dark. we fish in town behind a gas station we get there and there was a ton of these brown grasshoppers on the water so i tie on a hopper pattern i tied at troutfest with a dropper behind it. just to see what will happen because every time fish this hole i streamer fish but i landed 9 small bows on my hopper. then i tie on my favorite streamer that we first tied to small mouth fish with but works great for trout to. on my streamer i caught 2 bows about 13" a piece.

now pictures

Thanks for the report Sam. That bow looks like a lot of the ones that I have caught in the Smokies this year; fat and happy! Big Creek is a cool place. I fished it twice last year during low water conditions, I imagine it looks a lot better now with all the rain we have had this year.
