ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Not worth it. Why would you travel over 3 hours to catch stocked trout in a cow poop stream.

Cowboy has stories about going down there and throwing handfuls of pellets in the stream and the run boiling with trout scarfing down the pellets. Says it really gets the fishermen angry who claim they are now wild trout because they have been in there so long.

I never fish it anymore. Once upon a time the kept thecattle fenced out. Not anymore. And it gets pimped out worse than any water I know.

You mean them trout "went native?" Heh. That's what I've heard old-timers say.

I wouldn't drive 20 minutes to that POS water.  Driving to the Cape Fear, floating/fishing from Buckhorn dam to Lillington, and camping at Raven Rock would be awesome.

So, there are cattle running up and down the banks and through the creek, but they won't let you wade?

"Wading is not allowed. All fishing must be done from the bank to avoid damaging the stream or its insect populations which the trout count on to thrive."

That's weird, to say the least.

If I wanted to fight the crowds to fish a place like that, I'd hit the Davidson or the trophy water at Cherokee. I can be on either one in about 45 minutes or less; but I hardly ever fish the D, and have never fished the Cherokee trophy water.

+2 on what Yaller said, except I've never fished the Davidson (or wanted to) and only tried the Cherokee crap once. That was enough.

It's more so that the stream is unwadable.  You step in that stream and you'd sink into 3 ft of mud and cow dung.

If you ignore the part of the Davidson that everybody else fishes and go way upstream or hit the tributaries, there is some really good small-stream fishing over there. And almost nobody else fishing it.

Sounds like the "insect population" they talk about is probably mostly flies. :D

Good to know. The crowd thing kept me from looking at it.
As far as Cherokee trophy water -- I caught a big huge "golden trout" or whatever it was called there the one time I fished it (among other stockers). That was the ugliest excuse for a trout I've ever seen.  :o
