2-17-11 Nice walk, no fish from the Creek - again

Growbug
I took D at GroundNPound for a days walk whilst he showed me new techniques and helped me with my water reading skills (which really suck).
Snagged a few RockFish, but they didn't fight real well. Even managed to loose the nice AgentOrange bug i got in the last swap ( i need to tie some of those ).
Saw a few fish, including one largish one. They all refused to play.

No bad points to D from me, he did his job, did it well, and i came out with more info then i went in with. He is a great guy and if the guide job doesn't work out, him and his dad could do a nice stand up comedy routine!!

I have been hitting the creek as much as i could these last few months and have only had one serious "FISH ON" moment (when i hooked into a bobber, which was connected to a jig that was already hooked into the fish). I am not going to get downhearted, I will get a fish one day. Until then those little 'thump thump' moments will keep my adrenaline going!!

Altogether, this is just another "went to the creek and didn't get anything" report!
Hmm wonder what will be in there in 2 months.

Maybe it's time to switch to a different river. Or a new technique.

Time to change river for sure. I have just about thrown everything in my tackle box at them using everything except my kids Dora rod.

If you're free Tues, Wed, Thurs, or Friday we could try a new river this coming week...I got myself a bobber setup and had a fish on the Wilson last week that broke me off.

Do not give up on the creek! Now that you know where to look, just keep going and going and going.... You'll get it. Trust me.

Oh no I am not going to give up on it... just time to try somewhere else for a change.


Thanks for all the advice on where to try, but I think I know my next trip. Going to drive 1/2 mile to the Mo and try her for a while.

Good idea. id stick to the closest river to your home that holds steelhead. that way u can make more trips there and learn the water better.

That's good advise, I've been trying it, and know the river better but the fish won't become acquainted. Tell you what, when one of them does, if its hatchery, i'm gonna introduce the rock to it. HaHa.

One of the reasons that i have been hitting the creek more this year is so that i could study the smaller water. I love the Molalla, but have been getting into a rutt fishing the same holes, etc, cos i know them.
After fishing and studying the creek for a while, i now realise that i have been walking past a lot of water on the Mo that i should have been paying closer attention to!

A 'nice walk' and now you can add a bumpy boat ride to your most recent experiences. Beautiful river and a great day! Thanks!
