Saturday, Oct 2, 2010 - Clear Creek

Fished Clear Creek today with my neighbor Tom. Fished under the bridge by Kermits from about 8:30 to 12:30. Nothing fancy, just big nymphs/midges. Caught about a half dozen each, all were browns, the smallest being 5 inches, and the largest about 12 inches. The fish were a little more picky than I remember. We could see a lot in the bridge pool, but couldn't hook them - we caught a couple, but not like every other cast.

The river scares me, truck tires, rebar, hub caps, rubber tires, deer carcasses, garbage. Yes, I said garbage. This is the same exact spot that Avi and I cleaned up last week and there was at least a garbage bag full of new trash just laying around. Sad. Depressing.

I forgot my camera, so no pics.

That's sad... all the trash and tires. Funny how fish survive though. I love the pic in the header of your blog. What a pig!

It's forgetting the memory card and the dead batteries that always sneak up on me.

The trash that Clear Creek Canyon sees is out of control. Manage to always haul away a 13 Gal. trash bag every trip. Just imagine what it would be like without fine fly fish-folk picking it up.
