@ZUG: yes, you are correct and it was probably do to some tangle knots. thanks again.

@BIG T: thanks. I just discovered that place and love it. I'd love to learn more about the places to fish at the dam, abbotts and jones - these are all places that are reasonably close to me.

There's a lot of info available just by scrolling back through posts or doing a search. If you have a question about an older post, it's best to pm rather than revive an old thread.

As far as the dam area goes, I'm saving my pennies to hire Big T for a tour once the water starts clearing.

Use the Advanced Search option, enter the keyword, and the make sure to select Search Titles Only (rather than posts). For example, here are the search results for the keyword "Abbots":

The water around settles is loaded with fish. The shoals just above the bridge get fished pretty hard, but produce decent fish year round. In my experience nymphing has been most productive, but streamers and dries work well too. Strip a wooly bugger with a stonefly nymph as a dropper to prospect areas that look fishy.

If you haven't fished below Settles Bridge I would give it a try. There are some great runs about a couple hundred yards down there as well. Not bad wading and can be accessed from either side of the river if you dont enter from the park side, as I dont. Good luck!
