Nice fish! I have caught a few, it just seemed like less fish than I have seen in the past. There are a few big carp in Pine Creek around the bottom of the DHALO section. I usually try not to catch them. If you don't mind me asking what did you use to catch that beauty?

I caught those Pine Creek carp in High School! I caught that bow on a brown san juan worm.

Well i caught a huge rainbow today on deer creek. I have a net from L.L.Bean that this fish wouldn't even fit inside. It was about 21 inches. Bad part, I went to take a picture with my phone of this magnificant fish... Phone went in the drink!

Deer Creek is a nice stream. Lots of nice holes to hold fish over for a while especially above the golf course. It does blow out quick though after high flows and Im sure they get pushed around.

Bull Creeks dhalo section seems to keep the fish longer, maybe due to less pressure. Ive seen a few campfires streamside though around opening day...never a good sign.

Offtopic, but I'm reading George Harvey's book right now and it had this passage:

"We used to fish a pretty good stream a few miles from Pittsburgh - Deer Creek. It empties into the Allegheny River's right bank as you go downriver. We'd drive up there in the evening and fish the lower couple of miles. It wasn't a big stream, but there were wild trout in it. I didn't fish any other streams in south-west Pennsylvania".

I love reading these old books and seeing things like that....

Interesting. I always thought it was a put-and-take fishery and used to fish it often in my younger days. I have talked to old timers who swore there were stream-bred browns in select locations. Of course, a lot has changed since George Harvey fished it, I'm sure.

I know years ago when the lakes of Deer Lakes Park were first created, they were formed utilizing the natural, spring-fed waters in that region. I'm wondering if he may have fished it before that when the influx of Little Deer Creek in the lower waters may have been cool all year.
