Eastern Washington – Desert Creeks

#6
dudes!

eastern washington desert streams are THE last remaining frontier. posting a few pics is no big deal as long as there isnt any identifying features lurking in the background. naming the creek is just stroking your ego. i have no clue whether or not you are right about the name of the creek but please edit that shit.

not everything needs to be shared on a board that gets this many hits a day. desert creeks are earned, and the browns are gold. dont fuck it up! :beathead:

Dude if you think Crab Creek is a hidden secret then you need not worry about it.

I've found, over the years, that nearly every lake, river, stream or puddle is somebodies secret fishing hole - no matter how obvious and over fished it might appear to you.

Having seen a few of my favorite spots named on the 'net, and seen the ramifications of their naming, I just don't post names or directions to any spot I fish.

And there are a few spots I know that I don't even tell fishing partners about.

So, I guess I'm just saying that just because its not a very special spot to you, doesn't mean that it isn't a special spot for somebody - maybe just give that a thought before publishing it's name to the 'net - especially when its done merely to show that you know something that perhaps others don't.

One day it just might be your special fishin' hole that somebody posts on here.

Crab is no secret. On the otherhand, advertising doesn't help waters too much. Look at what happens when newspapers post on areas. Newspapers don't get nearly as many people seeing what is written as the internet. Most EW desert creeks are earned, not learned keep 'em to yourself if you have them. If you are "fishing" for EW desert creeks on this forum, there is a far more efficient method to finding those waters... it is called a Washington Gazateer. Less hurt feelings if you find them yourself. BTW I have posted reports on Crab in the past and have seen first hand what happens. That is my home water. Tight lines.

Wouldn't matter if you posted an eastern washington creek a day on this site complete with gps readings and pics. Places like rocky ford, the NF cda, the st joe, the grande ronde, and the clarkfork, etc will continue to draw the crowds. There just aren't that many small creek/small fish aficionados out there.

you go ahead and keep thinkin that! :thumb:

meanwhile, back here in reality, crowd is a very relative term.

it wouldnt take many "aficionados" to sink a desert stream. being as there is a limited amount of them to begin with, with even fewer that have a stable and thriving population of fish, and even fewer still that support a population of brown trout im pretty sure your theory is bammer. like i said before, i dont know the stream in the picture but the point is that it doesnt need to be named by someone lookin to give their dwindling ego a pleasure session. done. and done.

**i wish there was an icon that had a dude with his head up his ass. too bad, ill settle for this :mad:
