Pine River

I just finished another nice trip. This morning I headed back to the Pine River, this time to a downstream section.

It was raining a little when I entered the river around sunrise. The fishing started off pretty slow, and I caught only an occasional tiny trout.

The weather improved throughout the morning, and so did the fishing. Midway through I landed my biggest trout of the year so far. Midsize and big trout kept coming until I had landed twenty-nine and it was time to head back.

The GPS told me I had fished almost four miles, so I was happy when someone stopped to offer me a ride back to my car.

It was lunchtime by the time I hit the road, and so I headed to Pumphouse on the Mill in Wild Rose for a sandwich. The food was good, and you can beat the outside view of the mill pond.

My big goal for the evening was to catch at least one crappie on the fly rod, right before the sunset the crappie went shallow and started biting like crazy

@david-jefferies asked, “Nice… What weight do you use for something like that? I’ve only fished salmon and steelhead on a fly rod.”

I use a 5 weight, but that is the only fly rod I own. I think ideally a fish like this a 3 weight would be better for

Which are your favourite top 5 fish to try and catch?

In no particular order I think I’d go with Bowfin, Longnose Gar, Flier, Bigmouth Buffalo and Grass Pickerel

I like your bracelet where can I get one? Tight lines!

Thank you! It is my favorite, I actually made it myself because I couldn’t find any good ones that had crinoid fossils on them. I tend to look for those fossils while I’m fishing and that one is from one of my favorite places on earth. So that is what I came up with. I don’t sell them, but they are really common fossils and you could easily duplicate the bracelet. Tight lines!
