This is quite a beautiful little creek, I enjoy it also. The last time I was here I could've pissed more water into the creek than it already held.

I've only seen one other area that seemed to boast the flora that this one does and that was up at Wilson Creek, NC. It's worth stating that I haven't been at every creek at prime flora-popping time, naturally.

I may head here tomorrow, who knows?

When I arrived at the trailhead there were already seven vehicles crowded into the parking area and another one pulled up as I was gearing up to wet wade the small creek.

I had planned to start up higher, but there are a couple of spots I like to hit along the way and once I got in the water, I just followed my usual route and with plenty of daylight ahead I could still hit the upper section, but when I reached the end of the usual beat, I saw two anglers coming down the trail. It was Pee-wee and his friend. They hollered at me, and I got out and we talked for a bit. I had been fishing behind them all day and the prospect of continuing became a mental thing and after a brief spell I decided I couldn't continue. I had caught a bunch of small 4-to-5-inch brookies and one that pushed seven. Most I didn't try to take photos of and the few that I did attempt managed to escape before the shutter button was pressed.

Here's what the day looked like minus the fish.




On the way out an Osprey flew up the gorge on a training mission.

me -There's a season?

How's ol'  Pee-Wee Smoke doing? Last time I saw him he could barely walk. Hope he was moving better!

They made it up a mile above me - I passed them on the way out — they didn't catch up to me by the time I left.

Pretty time of year to be out and about. Peewee ain't got no friends :laugh:  :P
