Hey guy. Me and a few of my friends might go up to the wilson creek area sometime soon. Theres a lot of water up there, too much to fish in a day trip :( anyone have any recomendations for wild trout up there. I'm not asking for anyones gold mine stream or anything, i just wanna catch a few fish with my bros while we chill. Any info is appreciated, thanks!

Bluelining is a process of elimination, you sometimes find good ones, you sometimes don't, you get tired, you give up and prepare a better attack for the next time. I expect you to at least do some work before I tell you anything.
Now get your arse off your chair and git on em boy!!! 8)

Okay ill try that! Some of your posts on here have inspired me to start bluelining. And thanks for the comment!  :D

To build on Mike's comments, there are some good mapping resources online you can use as well...and I think some folks have posted some good links to that kind of stuff on here in the past.

Even at it's simplest I found myself using terrain view in Google Maps quite a lot, plus it shows most FS roads that can be used for access.  It won't show some of the smaller/micro feeder streams, but you should stay off those anyway.   :D

I almost drown up there one time in a flash flood :o
There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

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

Pull out your map, find the Wilson, and look for tributaries.   Don't be afraid to hop across a ridge or two as well.

There's so much water up there, you can't help but find fish.

Thanks guys! And thanks for the links!

There are no wild trout left in the Wilson Creek drainage area.  :-X

Dude, you gotta start buying maps and shit and figure out these places to go on your own. I've already told you about one killer brook trout stream and you haven't even gone to it yet... It's maybe 45 minutes from Wilson Crk.

Don't worry about Patrick, he's just being a dick.  I second those maps that tranny pointed out.  Can't go wrong with those Delorme maps.  They are pretty good at marking most of the streams up in the mountains.  Remember too, Google is your friend when it comes to researching streams  8)
