Great pics Jay! Nice fish and scenery. Looks like yer having some fun out east, I'm headed out in a couple hours to chase some green carp. And I'm guessing my scenery might be a tad better - hubba hubba. If I don't get arrested taking pics, I'll post a couple. grin.gif

Hey Duff - Your scenery might be "nicer" but I bet you have to deal with jetskis, boaters, and yahoos. I fished for 4 hours yesterday and saw one guy hundreds of yards away...

Its that time of year here for all the local festivals and county fairs - plenty to look at there, both good and bad...

Dark Cloud,

Looks like your rivers are just a tad bit bigger than ours. grin.gif

soHaad - Thats the upper Delaware. Shes big but also runs cold from the dam. And shes definatly a challenge to fly fish but home to wild browns and rainbows in the 20+ inch class.

We spend a bit of time there but also stomping miles of small streams.

Is this more your size?

Yep. Now I feel more comfortable. Great pics. It looks like you've got some great water to fish. Do those fish below the dam feed on mysis shrimp? I used to live near the Taylor dam in Colorado, which had a similar situation.

No shrimp here but that tailwater is thick with bugs. Mayflies, caddis, and stones. Right now its mostly blue winged olives and sulphers...

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
