6 ???

GOT IN THE CREEK BY 6:30 AM TODAY AND A LIGHT RAIN FALLING.  CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I FISHED IN THE RAIN AND IT JUST SEEMED PERFECT TO FISH.   I CAUGHT A CHUB RIGHT AWAY AND HAD THE FEELING IT WAS GOING TO BE A GREAT MORNING OF FISHING.  BUT I ENDED UP WITH ONLY 6 BUT ONE WAS A  REALLY NICE SMALLY.  I DID SEE THE AGLES AGAIN AND THAT MADE ME HAPPY AS I WAS STARTING TO GET WORRIED ABOUT THEM.  DUCKS...SANDPIPERS...GREEN AND BLUE HERONS AND THOSE CEDAR WAXWINGS WERE FOLLOWING ME UP AND DOWN THE CREEK AGAIN.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY

WAS IN THE CREEK ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AS I WAS ENJOYING MY VACATION IN THE PEACE AND QUIET OF BUFFALO CREEK.  FRIDAY WAS REALLY GOOD AS I CAUGHT 2 HUGE PICKERAL.  LOTS OF DUCKS AND BIRDS OF ALL KINDS AND FINALLY SAW SOME DEER. BUT HAVEN'T SEEN THE EAGLES IN A FEW WEEKS AND WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM.  THE CREEK IS AT A VERY NICE LEVEL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR BUT SHOULD BE WITH ALL THE RAIN.

2 DAYS OF FISHING AND A BEAR CUB

KIND OF BEHIND ON SOME POSTS.  FINALLY GOT BACK IN THE CREEK FISHING LAST SATURDAY AFTER WEEKS OF RAIN.   HAD A GREAT DAY WITH  PLENTY OF FISH...TONS OF DUCKS AND DUCKLINGS TO WATCH AND MORE BALTIMORE ORIOLES.
THEN YESTERDAY I GOT IN THE CREEK ABOUT 6:30 AM AND ANOTHER GOOD DAY WITH 15 CAUGHT AND 3 WERE MONSTER CHUBS.  THE ONE WAS FOR SURE 15 INCHES IF NOT 16.   ONLY ONE DEER AND HAVE TO SAY IT'S BEEN ODD HOW FEW DEER I HAVE SEEN THIS YEAR.  IN FACT I THINK THIS WAS ONLY THE 2ND ONE I SAW.  FINALLY CAUGHT SOME ROCK BASS  AND MORE DUCKS INCLUDING A GORGEOUS FEMALE WOOD DUCK.  ALSO I HEARD THIS ANIMAL SCREAMING IT'S HEAD OFF AND WHEN I GOT HOME I SEARCHED FOR THAT SOUND ON THE NET.  PRETTY SURE IT WAS A BEAR CUB YELLING FOR MOM.

BEST DAY EVER ?

MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE BEST DAY EVER IN ALL MY YEARS OF FISHING BUFFALO CREEK.  I HAVE CAUGHT MORE FISH BUT NEVER SO MANY OF SIZE.  GOT 19 IN ALL AND MOST OF THE SMALLYS WERE  OVER 12 INCHES.  ALSO GOT 2 BROOKIES AND A 16 INCH PICKERAL.  AND LOTS OF WILDLIFE INCLUDING THE EAGLES FLYING OVERHEAD.
