Hunting Access Points for a Small Flow


LM in a State Park in the Rain

What do you do when its raining and all the rivers are high and muddy? Go fishing ofcourse! Find a State Park lake in the foothills where the water is still clear. Fish were sluggish and I only caught 3 in 4 hours but caught a couple of good ones and lost one that would have been over 5lbs but she shook the hook. I think the females were hunting a bedding spot. All fish wanted a black/brown Deciever.









Hunting Access Points for a Small Flow

Many of my favorite river floats are over an hour away from the house so doing those trips usually takes up an entire day. Many of them are also well known and they get fished a good bit. So I got to thinking and decided that this year, I was going to start exploring those small flows no one fishes that are closer to the house. This type of water would be great for times when I only have half a day to fish. This is also a great way to find those special honey holes that have big uneducated fish. Only draw back is finding places to park and a good path down to the water. Sometimes, you just can't get there from here but the only way to know is to go check it out. Google Earth can only show so much. I try to add a couple of floats like this every year but it takes time, gas, and patience. Some folks aren't willing to do the research and expect others to do the leg work and then show them where to go. Well, after doing the hard work, I'm keeping these under wraps if they pan out good.
