The only 2 fishermen anywhere Sunday in the pouring rain were Tim's 2 boys. They were agitating to go out in the kayaks. These boys wanted to fish! What rain? What cold?

how well does mcfly foam float?  And I've caught bass on a baby nutria pattern.

Unless you treat McFly foam with a floatant, you can forget about it staying on top of the water. Just the weight of the hook is enough to pull it under.

Another note:

There were no eating or cooking utensils in the cabin when we got there, so we wound up flipping the bratwurst with fingers and a fork, on Friday night.  24 bratwurst gone in very short time.

That method doesn’t' work for hamburgers, so we had to improvise again, this time using a machete as an oversized spatula.  6+ pounds of hamburger devoured

Harmon Creek trip, 2015-03-07

The cabins that “sleep 6” only have 1 bed, 1 loft, and one futon.  Don’t ask me how we managed to get 2 more cots spread out in the tiny cabin. Mike and J. set up a tent, with heater, close by the launch point.  Dinner the first night was bratwurst, cooked on charcoal, with sides.

17 club members made it for Saturday’s fishing

50+ white bass were caught.  I actually lost count after people started telling me where, and how many were caught. 

One Kentucky bass and one turtle were also landed.  The turtle, and the black bass, were returned unharmed to the creek.

The 0700 launch turned out to be an overly optimistic guess.  With frost on the boats and kayaks, the launch was delayed, and then delayed again.  The last boat actually launched at noon.  The white bass were all in staging pool, stacked up in deep cold, 51°F, water, and not biting very well.   A lot of the ones that came to hand came to small flies drug deep.  I didn’t get a picture of Phil’s fly, but I watched him pull in a few fish without ever changing it out.

The kayaks travelled 3.08 miles upstream of the launch point exploring, and casting to likely holes, and pockets. 6.16 miles total travel, according to the GPS.  Kayaks catching rates were just as good as the boaters.

With the clarity of the water in the creek, the hard sandy bottom, and the fishy-looking structure on the shoreline, we may have to make this trip again in the summer.  Pictures to follow….
