: Can anyone out there give me some suggestions as to where to fish on Cooper Creek and fly patters to use? I usually fish there a few times each
: season. Mostly from the bridge downstream through the campgrounds until it runs onto private property. I normally catch plenty of fish, all stockers of course, when using spinners or bait (corn). To me, the creek looks like it would be an incredable fishery for holdover, wild and stream bred fish. So, are there any fish there that will take a fly? If so, can anyone
: suggest a pattern or place to try?
Al dont give up on Coopers and the section you are fishing especially in October.
Try a rust brown nymph in size 12,14 and get it on the bottom.In the mean time,
fish the section above the campground,it is rough but I have seen some really
big trout up there.Use dries (Adams,Dorato,And the Muddler as a dry) and nymphs
(Hares Ear,Rust brown)and Less I forget a big ugly Wooley Bugger or Yuk Bug.Get
the nymphs and W.B.and Yuk down deep!Also when you fish the swift runs don't forget
to try the undercut banks-the can hold some big trout though they might look like
nothing to you.Wear blend in clothes and stay out of site as much as possible.Thats
my 2 cents.Good Luck.GRW PS leave the worms and corn home you really dont need them.
