I hit the creek solo today. i was several miles into the drive and still wasn't sure where i was going to fish. i stopped off at a small creek and made just a handful of casts into it, didn't see anything. drove down the road some more to a creek that i've been eye balling since i arrived in montana but until recently was victim to the lengthy run-off. i fished it lower at first only moving 1 nice fish on a double bunny. i only fished a short section there before driving up river to a bridge which i parked at then walked down about a mile before fishing my way back up. i started with streamers getting into a few then switched to a sgt slaughter in cicada colors and get into a few more. at this point i couldn't decide if i wanted to drive further upstream or fish something different. after some grub i chose to stick with this creek and drove a few miles upstream. the creek took on a whole new look up there. it's much smaller with a lot of washed out trees littering the banks and water. i switched to a grumpy frumpy and started by catching either juvenile brookies or juvenile bull trout, at that age they look very similar. i was casting to this one hole and on my forward casts a small bird flew right into my loop and took the grumpy frumpy to the wing. catching a bird was a 1st for me. not only is it catch and release for bulls and cutts, but also birds. the further i walked up the bigger the fish seemed to be. i ended the day by putting on a sgt slaughter in green with yellow rib to simulate a small green hopper. the last hole that i fished i landed a nice 14" cutt that had positioned itself below an over hanging tree. as i got off the dirt road and onto the hwy there was an ambulance and fire truck crew tending to an over turned truck. over all today was a pretty good day. the weather was great and the fish action was steady.
