Black Crappie


How many have caught a non-stocked Cutthroat? I cannot get one to save my life.

I'm still ticked about that monster rainstorm (the one that knocked out the road into Westcreek) which destroyed my brookie pond; bro & I had some nice looking ones, too. Man, I'm pissed about my great by-hand dredging for the brookies; UGHH, the conservation of futility is alive and well in the Splatte! I should write a book.

Hey bro, I've caught a few native cutts, in my time. Always on flies and always a long hike from where normal people fish. Its all in the stealth and presentation of your fly (or lure/bait). Its work but its damn fun.

What goes up must come down
Finding the right creek is the key to the greenback. I've caught the same fish for years...until some jack-ass comes along and eats him.

That's a sweet lookin 'throat. All I've caught are Lahontan.

...there's a photo at Tom's Place of a lunker (35? 40?) from Pyramid Lake if any of yall are climbing in the Sierras, it's worth a look.

here's a stringer from back in the day

I don't think its a white bass, there are no lateral lines on the fish. I also think it is to dark.

But it may be a white bass with a darker color variation... Unless its a hybrid of some sort then I have no idea

That there is the biggest damn !PERCH! (Percidae) I've ever seen, or caught in my life. Actually it's a Perca boca grande, or Argentine large-mouth perch, which is native to the northern part of patagonia. This particular specimen was <16" and about seven pounds, and was caught using an egg-sucking leach stripped along an undercut bank at Arroyo Pescado, a premier spring creek about one hour east of Esquel, Argentina. Arroyo Pescado is well known for thier large rainbow trout, but the perch have become well established there in the last few years.


Pete, I just couldn't believe that so I threw it out and went with a bass. That was a good question though, nice catch. I wish I could show you some fish we caught in WY (private land w/ permission), but you'd know what they are right off the bait (ah!). Rainbows - BIG Rainbows; I thought they were Pike (large Pike) when I hooked one. Cool.

You guys had much luck catching Tiger Muskies in CO? I've fished them twice and got real lucky once...I like river/stream fishing a lot more so I don't try much but catching a 20+lbs fish in Colorado doesn't happen much for me and is pretty exciting.

I've done a bit of tiger musky fishing in Colorado. Quincy resevoir is an awesome place to go. Harriman Lake park is another good place to go, but they a definitley a fish of a thousand casts there!!

Hey Matt....did you take those tigers on streamers? What colors?Did you use a steel leader or just hard mono? Looking to blast a few of these nasties this spring...and am tying patterns for them right now...just curious what worked for ya! Cheers!

I've fished them twice...two half days up on a Front Range pond. I'd estimate the fish at about 20lbs and took him down with a 5 inch long diving rappala. I went out to Cabellas in Nebraska and was checking out the muskie lurers and I think the goal is to imitate fish that are in the 8-18 inch range. Big, hairy, feathery, bright, monster flies/lurers are what take them down...I was pretty lucky because in my half day I must have casted a couple hundred times...steelhead, much harder to catch.

hey Tea. I have taken some of the Tigers on a fly. I fished a black/yellow bunny bug, a black with krystal flash Barr 'Bou Face, and various strip divers. I used ten inches of Surfelon Micro Supreme knotable wire leader. I suppose hard mono might work. The fly turnover would be a little better I think but you run that risk of the teeth claiming your fly as a trophy. Let me know if you catch any of those bad boys.

I have a couple of St. Croix rods they are begging to be used but there isn't much for good fly fishing out here. Some bonefishing but its not that great. But the tragedy is there is no trout fishing here :(

Strip streamers for angry sea fish!...might be suprised what turns up. white/oilve clouser will probably hammer up SOMETHING...and even little guys from the sea fight HARD.

Here's me before I started climbing:

I still make it out occasionally, but the climbing really cuts into the fishing time.

Never fished in any salt water before, but figured I'd bring my rod when I was up in Juneau last week. Dolly Vardens are more like polite sea fish than angry seafish, but they were fun to catch on a fly. I got about 30 of them in 4 days of fishing:



I also caught the ugliest thing I have ever seen. Didn't take a photo since I was by myself that day and didn't want to touch it. Here is a web stock photo of an Irish Lord:

Speaking of water, fish, and climbing, Elk Creek (the creek that runs south to the Platte via the Bucksnort road) has a future that looks bleak. I don't have time tonight to get into it but you guys can by going to mywoodside.com/ and reading about the situation. Plus you can sign a on-line petition as an extra bonus to attempt to stop this drying up of Elk Creek by classic sleazy out of state developers.

If the creek runs dry we loose habitat, dry up wells (even Joe's at the Snort) and the fire risk goes up as one can well imagine.

I urge climbers who visit the Platte (if not all climbers) to read and sign.

Thanks!

I signed it. We don't need another part of the Splatte lost to climbers and fisherman.

By the way Andrew isn't that a sculpin? Thats what it looks like to me at least.

An Irish Lord is a type of sculpin. The one I caught was about 12" or so. They sure are really ugly fish.
