  • Blue Line 2/24/18

    Did some blue-lining yesterday, and enjoyed the nice weather. I was super excited to try my new Redington Butter Stick 2wt out. I brought 3 fish to hand, and lost a few more. The fish below the falls were very active, and hit dries well. I fished mainly with a Yellow Stimulator.

    I caught one really nice Rainbow for the size water I was fishing. See the pic below.

      Saw the post before the edit earlier. Have heard of the place once or twice. Have heard different opinions on it. Doesn't seem noob friendly.

      Nice fish

        How are you liking that butter stick?! Used mine in the backyard lake with a topwater wiggle minnow, still casted well since I could time my pauses and feel the loading better. Also, great fish and post, I know that area very well!

                Good to hear they are hitting dries. There have been some winged food coming off for about 2 we is now in some parts of the state.

                      @Bruceja: not a dumb question, one I asked just about a year ago. A blueline is supposed to represent an 'unnamed creek/stream' - that is, if you look at a map, it simply appears as a "blue line" In Georgia, and likely other places, there aren't really any "true" bluelines anymore. Most creeks, streams, and watersheds have names these days, but here we still refer to them as bluelines to protect these sensitive watersheds. They typically hold small wild fish, populations that are sensitive to many environmental factors such as temperature and drought, and possibly to angler pressure. That is why the OP kept the name of the creek somewhat cryptic.

                        Nice fish. That lower section seems to be good for an occasional holdover that has worked their way upstream.

                          Great job, skimt127. Your expression in that pic says it all....catching a beautiful wild fish on a 2 wt, in a scenic spot, with no other anglers around. Awesome.

                            Blue Lines could also refer to the old maps that showed streams which were only open during trout season; on the maps those streams were shown in blue. But now there is no longer a designated trout season and all streams are open (Delayed Harvest is different). The PDF maps on the DNR site were replaced with an interactive map. Notice some streams have special regulations and are in purple.

                            We still list the link here on NGTO but the link is dead over on DNR. Guess we could point it to the new interactive map.

                              Sighter, I am in love with the Butter Stick. It was an absolute joy to cast. The presentations were so delicate. I was using a 50" furled leader (Cutthroat Furled Leaders) and they were really great. You should check them out.
