In a region known for trout, no posts? Deer season is over now and I feel safe to go back in the woods. Not a good idea during season to go on an outing to a native creek. Well, not around here anyway. One of my favorite native trout waters is now scheduled for National Forest logging this coming year. I plan to make several trips before spring. I'm not sure how this will effect the creek but I have to wonder, after all, our native species is in danger. This logging proposal has met heavy opposition and has even had the Forest Service reevaluate their plan. Others in the western region are set for logging also so check what is going on. NC Wildlife theirself has issued articles and warnings of the speckle's decine. Now this from another state office. I have fished this creek since I was young and had some great trips there. I'll try to get some pics. I hope our kids and grandkids can still continue to know the joy of catching such a small giant among fish. Size in this case doesn't matter.

Crummy, the lack of posts in some of the fish species specific forums is probably due to the fact that I just added these forums in the past couple months. I think some folks haven't even noticed them yet. I'm trying to route posts that mention specific species to those species specific forums, hopefully to get those moving. Thanks for starting this thread. :)

Had a great day fishing with dad on the native creek. First time in a long while since we left the boat at home and pulled on the waders for a day of trout fishing. My dad and grandfather started this whole obsession for me when I was a kid. Dad still hasn't lost his touch on the creek but some new inovations from the kid helped out. We caught several native fish, enough for a couple creel limits a piece. The fish were small as natives usually are. The thrill is in the chase. Water was really clear and with good flow. No fish to show when we got home but just a funny lookin' grin.

I sometimes throw a fly with a spinning rig. Other tactics are artifical grubs or redworm plastics. Ok, now for the truth, Gulp redworms. But I have always had success in the past with redworm look alikes. Don't forget the single hook spinners-Joe's Flies and Rooster Tails.
