I had wanted to fish this particular creek for quite some time now. But, as life would have it, I had never got around to it. But I finally did on July 17th.
I didn't know where to start, as little is written about this creek in the usual source books or online. So I chose a spot away from the camping and Razr riding hoards, and started fishing.
The creek turned out to be a winner! The trout were Yellowstone cutthroat trout, and although they weren't of any significant size, they were many and willing. This creek would be a great place for a beginner!
I used the Nissin Air Stage Fujiryu 360 5:5 (one of my favorite rods) and paired it with a 310 cm #3 fluorocarbon level line. I added 90 cm of 6X tippet to this. The combination worked well. Here, see for yourself:
Coming up, the afternoon session at a creek I'd fished years ago, but got skunked. I was back for revenge!
