Great day Saturday exploring some new streams in Michaux State Forest. First two were headwater streams to Long Pine Reservoir. Fished a slightly larger stream later in the day. All wild brook trout caught on a #14 Elk Hair Caddis.

Great pics!

Being new to that area, it 's on my list to explore. You may have just moved it up the list with those nice brookies.

Thanks guys.

cvlimestoner: I'm familiar with quite a few small wild trout streams in Michaux State Forest and Tuscarora State Forest that are worth checking out. Since you are new to the area, feel free to contact me if you need any intel.

Very nice pics. This is the closest boatable lake to where I live...very soon I want to take my boat there to do some lake fishing, then stash the boat somewhere near the mouth and go on foot, brookie fishing..best of both worlds!

Chaz and Bigslackwater: We fished the two branches of Birch Run. Didn't fish Long Pine Run. Also fished Rocky Mountain Creek along 233. Rocky Mountain is a nice creek.

I fished Birth once, that was enough for me, too much Rhody for me. Would you say Lone Pine is the bigger of the 2, or are they about the same? very infertile streams.

Both branches of Birch and Long Pine were about the same size. I agree that they were small and overgrown. I prefer fishing a slightly larger creek, but it's always nice to explore a few new streams!

We are taking the boat up to Long Pine Reservoir Sunday. Probably wont get to fish for brookies on the tribs. I'm taking my father out for fathers day and we'll just be boating. Hoping to catch some largemouth and panfish. I've heard mixed reviews. I'll be fishing on the fly and dad will have the spin rod. Between the two of us we should catch something...fingers crossed

Long Pine is a beautiful lake and I kayak it frequently with my wife. The fishing is poor due to the high acidity of the water. When it was impounded 40+ years ago it was stocked with WW fish including pike, muskies, walleyes etc. They failed to survive. Subsequent efforts to establish a trout fishery also failed. The lake does have a population of stunted bluegills and perch. There are also some LMs (a few of which are very large) but sometimes you have to really hunt for the bass as they tend to be deep on sunny days to to the extremely clear water.

Great lake for boating, hiking, and sightseeing. When I'm fishing I go elsewhere.
