Don H. first took us upstream to the predominantly fresh water. There was a ton of bait being smashed in the very first cove we came to, so we just had to stop and give it a try. After casting for a while and being teased by the smallish bass, we picked up and moved on upstream.
I had given Don H. a Chicone’s Disco Shrimp before we had launched and he was quick to tie it on. He had one good blow-up on it before we started playing with the gar that we could see rolling at the surface. Watching a gar try to eat a topwater fly is a different kind of fun.
One thing I didn’t realize is just how close to the salt we were. Don H. ran us out of the creek, and across some skinny water to a tributary that was all salt, and actually held feeding fish.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am looking forward to the club outing to this water.

Remember wait until first two cold fronts comes thru…this drives the trout and reds in the creek. Average creek death is from 4 to12 feet and a few 20 to 30 stops..excellent winter fishing. Also remember the Sun plays a major in catching feeding fish…also , slow,slow retreave. Good Luck..
