So I was hoping to get up to Erie for some chrome but unfortunately my fiance had some car trouble while out shopping...had to help her out and on the basis of time had to stay local...decided to try some rainbows at cool spring from 8:30 to 1:30...water was high but relatively clear and seemed perfect for fishing...however not a single bite...I tried multiple flys and different areas...nothing...I even just stood in the water for a while just to see if a fish would swim by me....nothing...I'm really hoping it was just my crappy luck and the fresh stock didn't die out from sandy..oh well...tomorrow is another day...on a more interesting note....

CAR ACCIDENT!!!!!

while I was in the creek fishing I heard a car coming down Houston Road...I could tell it was coming WAY too fast...I heard tires squeal and thought to myself "what the hell slow down"...I turn around and in disbelief see a white jeep fly of the road and down the bank rolling about 4 times toward the creek...I immediately took action and got out of the creek (after yelling "holy shit" like 10 times)....grabbed my phone and called 911 while running to the car and yelling to see if the driver was ok...luckily she was...her jeep landed upright and she was able to easily exit her car without any cuts or bruises...I didn't get any photos (thought it would be rude :b)... but she definitely messed up her jeep...if you ever visit cool spring walk up the hill from the gait and you will see where she went off the road...anyway enough excitement for one day...time for a cold one

Wow, that is nuts. So much for a quiet peaceful time on the water lol.

Last time I was on Cool Spring I didn't see nearly as many as I did when they first stocked it. I did manage 3, but I really had to work for them.

I fished Neshannock for about a half an hour yesterday, but didn't get anything. It was fishable, and I've caught fish in those conditions there before many times in the spring, but still a little high and muddy for my tastes.

That's not the first time a car has gone overthe hill side. A few years back, around Christmas, I was walking the trail near the big rock hole, and noticed a car that had gone off the road and was, basically, suspended above the trail by several trees. Needless to say, I made sure I didn't go back that same direction. That bend and the foul weather can make that particular spot a precarious one.

it's not a bad bend if you keep the car under 75mph!
