Thank You For Your Cooperation

Last Saturday was one of those days on the water.  No, it was not the typical day of finicky small stream trout frustration, yielding only a few takes and even fewer landed.  Rather, the weather was warm, the fish were frisky (and hungry), and good karma came my way.


There were more...but I'm sure you're tired of looking at my hand by now.

  1. I thought you vowed to get away from Valley Creek this year.....but heck, with fish coming to you like that, I can't blame ya. ;) Nice browns. Love the color. You catch anything else in there? Do they get bigger?

    1. I still plan on fishing different spotss. The last two fishing trips were last minute, and only for a few hours (VC is 15 minutes from my house). It's only brown trout water, although you'll find some suckers too. My PB at Valley was about 16 or 17", but it's small water so not a ton of large fish.

    2. Oh, gotcha. Well, I'm not complaining or anything. Just wanting to prod you in the right direction. Yellow Breeches, LeTort, Penn's Creek. :) 16 inches is a mighty fine trout for any water.

    Beautiful trout in or out of the water. I can barely see the fly, was it a Prince Nymph or Hare's Ear or neither? Thanks for sharing

    1. Most of the fish were caught with a copper john, the fly in the last photo is a rubber leg prince nymph.

  6. hmmm. Looks like they are the same fish with different camera effects. Just kidding mike, I'm just jealous because I haven't been on the water in months. Way to get after them.

  7. I fished VC Dec 28 and saw a school of about 40 fish - some lunkers in there for sure - all i did was see them.

    Will have to get up there again real soon. Looks like the Tully for me this weekend

    1. Yeah, I think I know of what you speak. Some of the biggest ones are likely suckers, but there are some nice fat browns, especially below the covered bridge.

    Have fun playing brook trout,

    1. You'll be proud I only lost one fly the entire day, and that was on a rock, not in a tree! I need to get you down to VC when it is not like 20 degrees. The fish actually bite!

  13. The above pictures are nice. After seeing these pictures I'm excited to get over there. I must say the fish-lady looks great with red dots.
