wild and free

#1
The stream and the brookies in them.I explored a pretty little stream last night on the way home from work. I only had a half hour, but my rod was already strung, just had to slip on waders. I caught several pretty, little wild brookies, and one redband. I can't wait to explore this area more, especially the beaver ponds I found right before I turned back. Skeeters were insane, and I saw four bear. Left some rubber on the road missing one that ran out on a blind corner. Hitting deer always sucks, but dealing with an injured bear is a nightmare.

what we need is a photo that shows both him & his truck , then we'll know what vehicle to keep an eye out for!!!! this is an old steelheaders trick find out what the hotshots drive and you'll soon know where the secret holes are ????

The bear cub picture gives you the color and make of his truck(for the sharp eyed).

There is a similar creek near here that runs through some exceptionally wild country that contains, I believe, 4 species of trout. I would like to fish it more but it is in the heart of bear(both kinds) and cougar country. A lot of brush beating has to be done to fish it, definately a job for young strong guys. Unlike streams like the San Poil however there are no rattlesnakes to worry about.

Bring a big bore pistol and a short 2 or 3 weight and come give it a go.
