Unfortunately I couldn't fish yesterday when it was sunny and in the high 40's so I decided to fish today in the rain when it was in the low 30's (as was the water temp). I did some scouting on local Class A's and ended up knocking on some doors. 2nd house was the winner. Nice gentleman granted me permission to access Appenzell Creek from his residence. I fished upstream for 2 hours and fished the same olive/black wooly bugger the whole time. Landed 2 browns and missed another all by dead drifting the bugger along deep and slower moving banks. I skipped over 80% of the water and strictly fished the prime winter holding spots mostly because I was wet and cold but I also didn't want to waste my time. Appenzell is much bigger than I expected and I'm guessing it's flowing about average for this time of the year. The section I fished had a medium gradient which provided some nice plunge pools which I'll explore next spring.

Cool looking creek. Fish looked thin but healthy. As for getting access, as and ye shall receive. If you are polite and genuine, people are actually quite open to granting permission. Rain or not, you got out and had fun. I did house cleaning and would haves traded with you in a heartbeat.

Krayfish...I agree. You won't know until you ask somebody to fish their property. I love knocking on doors. I meet some great people and the weirdo's I've come across always make for a good story later. It's funny the different types of "profiling" I do before I decide on a house. Probably shouldn't mention the details here as I'm sure I'd offend a lot of people :)

Beauty of a fish. Even with the clarity you can still see some red spots.
