Eagle Creek

August 23, 2015

With little time for a full fledged excursion, I opted for a two hour adventure to Eagle Creek on the morning of July 25th.  A beautiful day, Eagle Creek was clear and cool.  The foliage was in peak bloom and thick.  So thick that it  was difficult to approach the stream with any bit of stealth.

Musky fishing and fly fishing are miles apart in many ways.  Ironically, my trips to Eagle Creek are akin to musky fishing in that seldom is a fish caught.  Seeing a fish is almost cause for celebration and that is all I could muster, one measly sighting off a nice size brown that I spooked.

At the end of two hours I could say that I got bit, just by mosquitoes.  Note to self:  bring bug spray.
