    Paint Creek

    Paint Creek is a trip I make about every three years. It has several holes stocked with some really big trout. The fish must be absolutely pounded and are skittish. I last went about 3 weeks ago on a...

    What about the fish.

    That is a log. I couldn't imagine pulling that fish out of one of those streams. Without giving the exact location, is this right at the mouth or a mile upstream or so?
