Weather was perfect, but water levels were down. We started out at Oak trying our luck on some Browns, but found we were just alittle to soon. We got into some numbers but not like last year.
We hit a couple nice Browns and a few Steelhead. Joyce landed this nice fresh male caught on eggs.
So as night started to fall we headed up river to check out some runs for Fridays fishing.
On Friday morning we started up by the dam and worked our way back down to were we were before, running into alot of guys throwing streamers and beads.
We hooked into some nice Kings on the walk down that were sucking in the white wooly buggers drifting along. The fights were great on my light action 10 1/2' Cortland CTR noodle rod. We hooked into alot of fresh Kings but my rod couldnt handle there take offs.
On Saturday we decided to head up to 18 Mile Creek due to the reports of good number of Browns on the Creek. Guys lined from shoulder to shoulder. I started out fishing the train tracks while the other 3 split up to find fish. I wasnt hitting anything on sacks until I resized them to 3 eggs each and started to hook into some really nice fish. But getting past the kings was beginning to get hard as there were also nailing the pink sacks.
As the Browns were turning of to eggs, I tied on a white flash bugger and the Browns decided it was time to eat, hooking and landing some sweet fish including this awsome male. As the day went on and crowds were getting ruff, we decided to hit some small feeder creeks that we had passed over. Ended up running into King Heaven with only seeing a few guys within a 2 mile hike and fish. Didnt really matter what we threw, they were hungry. Kevin was hooking some monster males on gummy eggs.
So it was getting late and we started to walk back to the truck hitting holes and runs here and there picking out a few. We harvest 3 to take home for some eggs and meat. Joyce hooked into this nice hen on her fly rod. We had to tease her with "have you hugged your king yet today" LOL
We ended up leaving Sunday and taking the back country roads home and stopped at another creek before the P.A. line to find it a little dirty, but the veiws were beautiful.
I had a great trip this year fishing with Joyce, Kevin and Brad. It was the first time the three of them had been to New York and I think I have them hooked for next years trip. We had taken alot of photos, had alot of laughs and some good fights. Im counting down the days until we can do it again....
