Default Raven Fork Catch and Release(Trophy) Section Today

I have worked all night and am getting ready to run over to Cherokee and try to land a monster. I will either get on here later and post some good pics of a big fish, or I will get on here later with plenty of prefabricated excuses about the water temp, the weather, the crowd of people, or someting else I usually say when I just flat out can't catch a dang fish.

Well I caught twelve out of the catch and release section. 14 if you count the 2 I caught on a Dave's Hopper I threw out when two guys from the school across the road came over and threw in a bunch of biscuits that the trout were eating like crazy. I just threw the hopper in the middle of the bread crumbs and waited for the line totighten, but I told the guys I had to go because that was cheating. Biggest was a 16 inch rainbow, but I only took pics of the brookies and a brown. I will put up some pics in a few minutes.

First fish of the day

2nd fish of the day. same hole

3rd fish of the day

Another Brookie. They loved the ugly streamer I tied from just peacock herl and white bucktail


And here is my only Brown of the day. 3rd brown ever for me.

I didn't take any rainbow pics but caught several in 14 inch range. Still want to hook one of those huge ones though

great pics!!

I'm heading out that way for the first time this weekend. Hope I have some of the same luck you had.

What flies did you have luck with today? Which did you have no luck?

Thanks guys. I tried double nymphs, and I tries streamers, but I did best when I used a tungsten head prince with a white bucktail streamer about a foot befind it. The biggest rainbow took a tungsten hotwire prince, a couple rainbows took the normal tunsten prince, but the brookies, the brown, and most of the bows took the streamer and they took it hard. If you look back a few days I posted some pics of a golden I caught over there, and it took the same streamer. I just started tying flies a month ago, and it is a streamer I tied. Not sure what it is called, but it looks similar to a Mickey Finn streamer except it is white instead of yellow. If the water stays fishable I am going back Thursday.
