This little creek is almost famous. It has been featured on ESPN at least once and has also been written up in various fishing magazines. And each time it is publicized, a small group of devoted local fly fishers cringe. The fear, of course, is that droves of fishermen will start crowding the banks and splashing through redds (trout spawning beds) with reckless abandon. Thus far that has not been the case. The reason? The fishing is simply too challenging for most fly fisherman who find themselves in the area. To have real success here, you should plan to spend at least a couple of full days seriously working the creek. Those just passing through and stopping for a couple of hours will typically struggle, and many would rather drive another 45 minutes or so to get to Roaring River, Lake Taneycomo or Capps Creek. Those fishermen are missing out on a great experience. (1/19/13)
