My Corbin Report:
Decent stream... fish mostly small... very colorful, very strong... mostly bows... 5-mile dirt-road drive to the stream access... nice pools... but tough tough fishing... you really have to work to catch these fish... difficult rocks... difficult trail... lots of bear tracks/scratchings.... i give it two thumbs up because it's my type of stream... recommended only for hard-core trail blazers.

I've been to Corbin a few times! I've been itching to get back for some time now. I may just go this Saturday or Sunday. What was the hot fly?
Never been to Corbin but it's one of those I've drooled over while looking at the map. Been on my "to fish" list for some time.
I hear it's a good place to go for a rattlesnake roundup too - anybody confirm that?

The hot fly?... lol... that would be the panther martin gold/orange deluxe fly ;) ... de-barbed of course... ran out of my favorite, pm brown-trout dressed... guess that doesnt help you much Josh :rolleyes:
However, as you know, those pools are very deep for a small stream... and something deep would probably work well... there are a few very wide open pools... there are also pools where you can hide behind a rock and cast (or drift) downstream... and there are a many pools that have logs/limbs that make it very difficult to position yourself and the lure... the fish were somewhat spreadout... with quite a few still in the tail of the pools... unlike the warmer streams below the plateau where they have shifted to the head of the pools... the bows are pretty small... there are few chubs in the lower section.
All fish were returned safely back to the stream for you guys to catch again :) .
Speck... it's getting late in the season, so i'm venturing out for some late exploration... every trip until Oct 31 (or when gun season begins) will be a new stream(s) ... i had planned to hit Soapstone and Mill as well, but ran out of time... will pm you with some additional details tomorrow (if i remember).

Actually, PLT, that does help me! A Gold/Orange Woolly Booger ought to do the trick. Thanks and I'll be sending a report sometime soon.

Most of my trips are of the spur of the moment type... next trip may be Sept 28... if not then, maybe Oct 5 or 8... we're running out of time for seasonal streams :( ... havent yet decided between Swallow and Burton WMAs... also depends on gas prices... if > $3, may stay closer... would be glad to meet up with some of you, even if it's just to drink a yahoo, eat some nabs and compare notes.
By the way... although some streams have been posted before, i wont be reporting on all of the small streams that i explore... particuarly the all-wild ones... there are already several streams that i will never mention on this board.... Corbin is stocked (although it contains some wild fish) and it has been mentioned here before... that's the only reason i gave a report... Corbin is mainly for the hard-core.
