Default Rock Creek report 7/12/08

After a slow day at Mazonia, my dad and I hit Rock Creek. Got there around 4:30pm. We were flyfishing and the rabbit hair leach was the trick. It was pretty cloudy when we started and I picked up 4 smallies right away, the best being about 15". When the clouds moved out, we could only get rock bass to bite. My total was 4 smallies and 10 or so rock bass. My dad got about 10 rock bass and a chub on the same setup. Water was up a little and was stained, but it was warm.

Default Rock Creek 7/27 pm

After spending the day in the canoe with the wife and some friends, I hit Rock Creek from about 5-7:30pm. Water seemed kind of high still and very stained and cloudy. Visibility was maybe 12-18". Just upstream of where I usually enter, there were a ton of small fish breaking the surface. Tied on a zugbug and got a bunch of strikes as the fly hit the water. Mostly rock bass and chubs with a couple small smallies mixed in. Smallies were 8-10". Worked my way upstream with a rabbit hair leech looking for some larger smallies. Got a couple more, maybe 12" and a bunch of decent sized rock bass.

Be careful of "Devil's Hole" when you're around there.
