:crazy Crazy low and slow. I have never seen the creek this low, even in the middle of summer. Stopped at three of my usual spots, and didn't see one steelie. Still a couple kings dieing off, but no steelies or coho at all. Creek in so clear, you can see the bottom of the most deepest holes. It is going to take a lot of rain to shoot some fresh fish up there. Going to be a while before I head back.

Weather on the other hand was beautiful. Mid November and fishing in shorts and shirt sleeves. Can't beat that. At one point the boys and I just laid down in the weeds by a water fall and took a nap. Nothing like the sound of the water to lull you to sleep.

It is going to take a monsoon to get those creeks back close to normal. Since being there a month ago and doing well, the water is down almost a foot and barren.

Real bummer. I haven't been out there yet and really want to..almost seems like I should fish elsewhere. At least for awhile.

Not a bad idea. Try floating a crawler or throwing a Tail Dancer or J 13 there. You may be rewarded with a bonus. WALLEYE
