rush creek again

9 posts in this topic

Went to the rush on Sat. morning and it was a little up,but still managed 10 rainbows 12 and 13" and 1 brown at 14".And jbtwins24 the fish seemed to have moved to the west further now.As I only managed 2 in town and the rest I had to travel to the outer edge of town.By the way where did you say you got into those larger bows?.Also tried to travel over and hit east indian and west indian,but only managed 2 small brookies on east and no fish on west.They were both very low.

just floated crawlers.Tried across from campground by woods and only hit 2 there.Best area was out farther I took a blacktop road at the edge of town and went to where the bridge crossed the water and right by the bridge and toward town a little in the fast deep water.But still no rainbows over 13" I should have tried hoppers,but did'nt.It seems where ever I go though that I can get one decent brown if i work it hard enough.Still confused on where the big bows are however???Are you hitting them in the same area as i am fishing?

Do you start just below the rapids upstream from the bridge in town? If so, where do you park? Is it all public access? My brother and I are looking to drown some crawlers (that's the only fishing he does) Saturday morning.

Yes thats right Ron.You can access the stream by parking at the city park there by the rv park by the shelter and walking up that side of the creek.There should be room to park over to the side.Don't try the other side however as there is some posted land on the other side.Hope that helps and good luck.Things had slowed for me there last time I fished it.Let me know how it goes.

ya basicly what he said. ive fished from both sides of the creek and its alot better walking down the side where the roads not, you wont tend to scare the fish. i three spots that i fish and ive been catching alot of rainbows and this was just the other day.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
