Clear Water and Small Cutties







Recently I did a backpacking trip into Bull of the Woods Wilderness, along Elk Lake Creek, with my friends Les and Phil. The clarity of the water in these remote creeks is truely remarkable (thanks to the protection from logging in this area). The fishing for small native cutthroats proved to be non stop action with any choice of color Elk Hair Caddis, unfortunatly the largest was only 9-10" but still a load of fun.
I also fished a Beaver pond and spotted my first Oregon Beaver as well as a Bald Eagle flying above the creek. It was a great time and probably the last pack trip I will be doing for a while with the Triplets well on their way.
