Default Rock Creek 06/08/06

I have been to the park literally hundreds of times and have probably logged 10,000 miles on the bike trail over the years but have never fished at the park. I love to fish but usually head to the lakes. Wednesday night after reading this forum I called my dad and said hey, I'm gonna take tomorrow off, you wanna go fish Rock Creek. He agreed so we met up this morning.

Wow, what a day. I only caught 4 smallies(and missed about ten because I'm lousy hookset) but my pops landed 23 fish. 20 smallies, 1 rock bass and one sunfish.

I was using all the lures that I was told by a fishing guide on the Kankakee that would catch smallies. They weren't working for us all that great so my dad pulled out a pre-rigged 5 inch purple worm with a white stripe and that was the ticket. He landed almost all of his fish with that one lure. Too bad for me he only brought one

Suffice it to say that it will not be the last time I fish the creek.....

Nice job! That place can be very rewarding at times not to mention addicting too!

Rock Creek is an amazing place! My buddy and I found out about this creek a little less than a year ago and we've been going non-stop. He has currently moved to Alabama, but everytime we talked, we always mention Rock Creek. I'm hoping to bring my brother there next week, hopefully I'll be as lucky as you guys were.
Yes... I'm the guy that made the smoking thread.
