Along with the blueline fishing I did in Georgia back in June there was creek fishing done of another sort back at the cabin.
On two different days I managed to fit in a few hours on the creek. The first day I fished with a trusty hopper dropper combo that had a big chubby chernobyl and some buggy looking nymph off the back. I had some success, thought it was a pretty good day, caught some nice fish. One of my fish, a big brown, came on the chernobyl, which was a cool bonus because I kind of tie it on as a hopeful indicator.
The second day I fished I threw a big streamer. That’s when I realized that whatever action I had on the first day was measly in comparison. I was moving fish left and right with this big streamer. Talk about some fun fishing! Watching fish chase a minnow imitation down is an adrenaline rush and I highly recommend it.
I only have so much creek to cover at the cabin so I think working it once with the hopper dropper, letting it rest, then hitting it with the streamer was unintentionally a good move. It’s going to be hard to have that patience whenever I make it back though, some of those streamer eats were like watching redfish chase down flies in the marsh, just vicious. So much fun.
