Anyone fished it lately? planning on heading out there tomorrow

Thanks.

Water may be a bit on the high side. It is also going to be kind of cold and windy.

Update!!!!!!

So I took Onslow's advice and went to Basin Creek. Beautiful stream



Hit the road at 0500 hrs to make the 3 hour trek up 421



I get excited every time I start seeing the contours of the landscape change as I get closer to trout country

I pulled in about 0900, the sun still working it's was over the ridge line.



Weather was chilly but not too bad so I suited up adding an extra layer on the bottom before putting on my fishing garb and heading out up the trail. (nothing like army gear to keep you warm!) Fired up a smoke and I was ready!





Worked my way up the trail scoping out some holes and banks all the way up to the campsite before I dropped in the creek and started working it back to the road.







Pretty good day in the water!  Until next time!

Nice! I've not been there in a while, pretty little stream and trouts!
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!
