FWIW, why not head down to Laughlin and fish the Colorado for huge bows and stripers?


I will probably do that soon enough, but I really like the serenity of fishing the smallwater creeks/river bends right now. Even the area of the Colorado I fished in CO was pretty small.

Its certainly a huge river with a ton of flow. Huge fish. Looking at buying a secondary home out there.

I've fished Lake Mead for stripers on baitcasters, but never tried the lower Colorado for anything or by any means yet. It sounds intimidating, actually! I wouldn't know where to start. That's where I would probably break out my 8-weight Orvis 10' rod that I didn't bother bringing up here because it's way outside the discussion for a small creek. For the Colorado on big water with big fish and strong flows, however, it sounds like the ticket.

Six Gun, thanks for your service. The closest stream to Lock Haven that is a decent size and mostly on state land and fishes well in the fall is probably Lick Run near Ferrandsville. It's just north of Lock Haven and is almost entirely in State Forest. Wild Browns and Brookies are both fiairly common. I spent an afternoon there last fall with friends and had a blast.
My favorite rod for this size stream is a 4 wt. 7 1/2 foot.

It's time to stop stocking all wild trout streams no matter what Classification they are, and time to eradicate brown trout in some of our limestone streams and re-establish brookies in them.

Chaz - Thanks a lot. More options for the quest. It's amazing to hear how many quality streams run through this area I'm visiting!
