Re: UK wild browns

well as cold as it was, it had to be spring-fed, so I would say yes. Fortunately, it flowed through the grounds of the resort where I was staying, so no need for a special beat permit... just a visitor license.

UK wild browns

A bit late reporting but I made a trip to the UK back in August for work, and I brought along a rod just in case I had a chance to sneak in some fishing. I stayed in Castle Combe, which I did not know at the time I booked is this tiny old Charming English village, featuring..... an unstocked stream ...

Re: Ok it's cool enough , we can officially talk about trout again

AFTER I do the Burnt Mills dam removal project, of course :D :D Are you talking about the old dam that has been just sitting around and letting water run around it and eating the bank? I havent been to that part of the lamington since spring. How is the progress on it? Or Should I just take a look ...

Re: Ok I jinxed it the weather is gross

I can't believe how low the Black?Lamington and the SBRR and my little WTS have gotten the past month. I had really thought all the rain we had the past year would have given the aquifers a charge to handle a dry end of summer.

Re: Traveling with Fly Fishing Gear

Just made a trip to the UK... carried 8' 4-pc rod/case, reel, and fly box in my backpack both ways with no issue at all. The rod case stuck out of the backpack about 8 inches.

Re: Trout to Smallmouth transition

Stopped by the Lamington at the one lane bridge around Burnt Mills for half hour or so this afternoon. Little guys smacking some bugs on top all around me but all I had were woolly buggers. Managed one smallie and bright orange breasted sunfish. That remnant dam will be removed later this year and ...

Re: Trout to Smallmouth transition

I have fished the Lamington by 523 in summer time. I did get mostly smaller smallies (7-10 inch) as well as some wild browns. I fished up from 523 towards where the Coldbrook comes in, so that would explain the wild browns. I imagine if you go from the Lamington down towards the NBR, it would be mo...

Re: Trout to Smallmouth transition

Thanks for the feedback guys. Never thought about the Muskie that way, but I guess it makes sense with the mountain tribs it picks up heading down to the Big D. I might get out early tomorrow AM before the work calls start and hit the NBRR/Lamington junction. I need a full morning to head further so...

Trout to Smallmouth transition

You guys know roughly where on the SBRR and Muskie it is safe to start fishing downstream strictly for smallmouth without accidently encountering trout, especially wild ones?

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

Brookies?! I haven't caught a brookie in that stretch in 3 years at least. Good to hear.

Does anyone know if the big tree that used to extend almost all the way across the bridge pool, got cleared away naturally, or did it have help?

lost rod/reel

I pulled a huge blunder a week ago Saturday, 5/18, and only realized it last night. I was parked at the gravel pull-off right past Elisabeth Lane and Bartley-Flanders Rd. After fishing the SBRR in the AM, I was packing up, and STUPIDLY left my rod/reel leaning in the bushes. I got a phone call from ...

Re: Old Claremont TCA facelift

Its tough to improve for a number of reasons. Its fairly low gradient which makes narrowing the channel difficult. The stream bottom is more clay/sand/pebble rather than rocks or boulders. I think even if you placed large boulders here and there, it would just erode the banks and not deepen the cha...

Re: Old Claremont TCA facelift

It had been owned by Frazier Industrial and I was really concerned with what their intentions were with it. They must have sold/granted t to the county, per ...

Old Claremont TCA facelift

I fished the SBR Claremont from the bridge pool to about 250 yards upstream of the Fairmont parking lot yesterday. Caught 2 nice and lively wild browns, but the biggest ah-ha out of the trip is hw much this stretch has changed in the past year for the good. The high flows seemed to have cleared out ...

Re: Rhinehart Brook brown trout removal...

Completely agreed as well with Drossi and NJA. I love brookies and I am all for protecting them as much as possible within reason, but NOT at the expense of wild brown trout. I had not heard that to be the case, but it was early in the process that I had talked to F&G. Actually I don't have a proble...

Re: Wild browns - 12/15/18

Good to hear! I've gotten out a couple over the past 2 weeks and landed a few very nice wild browns in my local WTS. The good water levels are really helping things. No pics tho.
