Nice fish, any reports you have on the pipe are greatly appreciated, I only get to make the trip up a few times a year and thats my favorite spot to fish, so knowing if they are there or not is very informative. Thanks.

Wow that a clean and pretty fish there. I had some action at the pipe but didnt land 1!!! I saw several just idling in the current as the pipe was pushing into the lake.

Steeliedon, I haven't been to the tributaries down in Indiana for a couple years now... I use to go there with my 12 wt Loomis fly rod and System 2 reel driving an Egg-Sucking Luck with a little split shot on a 10 pound leader, I would tie my own flies before making a trip usually. Those creeks are skinny but hold some nice fresh Steelies and skamania's. Which creeks are you fishing and what run of the creek. PM me if you would like to meet up there and put are knowledge together on the creeks to chase some big steelies. I would love to hit those waters up again. I remember chasing a nice steelie I hooked that would not stop running up stream. he kept running under logs and and around tiber, etc... Talk about a battle. It's some tough but good fishing down there. anyways, hit me up on here.


Sincerely Dave
