All of the reports can't be good ones. I fished bath creek for 3 hrs this morning and didn't get a bite. Tried all the lures I've seen folks catching with over the past few weeks of reports. Mirrolures, xraps, soft plastics, you name it.

Zilch

Gave up on the trout and decided to try for a dumb hybrid rock.

Nothing

Anybody had any luck in that area lately? Was really surprised I struck out completely

Got some dumb rockfish across the river from Bath, along with a bunch of lmb all on white curly tail. No trout. I am obsessed with catching a trout there because it is close to my home, and stubbornness is in my dna.

all the rain we've had around this week I'd guess the local creeks would be washed out with freshwater runoff. Kinda locks the trout jaws.

Why you calling rock dumb? They fight harder and taste better than a speck imo. They also don't need a lure crept to catch them in cold water.
Fight harder I agree, taste better not to my taste buds. As to the dumb part, they very well could be dumber than a drum. The hardest part about catching them is finding them.

I love catching rock, just an inside joke. A buddy of mine always jokes with me because I catch lots of rock and relatively few trout. He says I'm too dumb to catch trout.

I like all of em, but I don't like catching hybrids as much. They don't fight like a natural

stella gave up one fish. must have been 40 gill nets within a mile of the bridge. some of them were actually on both sides in the same spot with only about 10-15 feet to get through right in the middle. It's a wonder to me that I got one at all.
