  • Saturday 11/18 Browns, Bows, Brookies and a Beast

    Headed north again today to try another NC dh stream. Thought about Fires but won out. It was 8:00 when the pavement turned to gravel and I was worried about getting a spot. Drove up to the middle of the section and hadn’t seen a car or fisherman yet, beginning to think I was at the wrong place. I was flying blind so I just picked a pull off at random. Got rigged up and was in the water right at 8:30. First cast was in the trees, lost both flys and the tippet. Tied on one of Prowlers candy corn mops below a green inch worm.

    A couple of bows got the day started.
    The mop bite slowed so a few fly changes later the brookie parade started


    About 9:30 the Browns decided to eat

    Picked up a couple of doubles

    A couple of fish started rising so I tied on a dry and caught 4 or 5.
    Took a break at 10:30
    Got a nice surprise when I got back in the water

    The bite slowed down a little bit so I went back to the candy corn mop and promptly started catching fish again.
    A whole bunch of fish were caught. Several were pretty nice size including an 18” brookie that came on double that somehow I didn’t get a picture of and this guy measured a little over 20”

          Thanks gau16

          Trout ďRĒ I recommend it. Was my first time there, Iím guessing others were fishing it but I didnít see anyone the 6 hours I was fishing. Saw one group of 3 on the drive out.

                  No bears or hunters, it was strange going to a DH stream on a Saturday in November and having it to myself.

                  Jackbauer you are correct on the name.
