: The Pileated Woodpeckers were out and about in the trees and
: the rainbows were hungry for a flashing lure in the Chatooga this past weekend
: (October 12/13). I fished it from Hwy 28 about 3 miles north upriver.
: My friend fished it with an elk hair, black ant, and a
: few other experimental things and caught a small 'bow. I
: fished with a Fox Vibrax gold spinner/brown trout lure.
: It's got a great action and I caught four nice healthy
: rainbows (stockers), the biggest about 12 inches. A fair
: amount of pressure, but not many people were catching
: anything. Any day now those browns will start moving...


I really enjoyed your update on the Chatooga. That is my favorite water, but it is a rather long haul. So I prefer to camp and make it a two day affair. Really some of the prettiest water in the East.Like you, I am waiting for those Fall Browns to start cruising.It seems that the more one walks, the more one has all to oneself. Yet I must admit that while the Burrell's Ford campground is in a great setting, the night time activities are a little hairy for the usual camping experience.

Thanks for the info...
Happy Hunting,
