Fishing was good for us on Saturday. Fished below fall creek, down past Roark Creek and here and there in between. 

We tried throwing jerkbaits in hope to catch a big brown- didn’t work out this trip.. But the jerkbaits did produce a couple good bass. The two bass were caught a couple hundred yards from each other. Both were released. Caught a couple crappie (was a first for us) down by the landing, and picked up a few trout down there as well. I’m sure someone who knows how to catch them crappie could have a good time down there right now.

Late afternoon/ evening we went up to the short creek area and started catching small rainbows. My buddy ended up catching a pretty good one up there. We worked the dock side past short creek and then switched over to the other side and started picking up rainbows all the way to Lilleys. Most the trout were small ones but still tons of fun. All our trout were caught on black, or black and olive jigs.  (Been watching the one cast and listening to Phil’s reports- Thanks Phil!!)

Great day to end the year!
