Maramec Springs 1/8/18

Recommended Posts

Fished the Springs on Monday with two friends and had a blast. we got a late start but it didn't matter.  One of the guys landed two 21 inch trout back to back. I caught fish on egg fly, copper johns scuds. soft hackles, and Wooley Buggers. I was pretty good fishing with multiple fish caught on many of the flies. I think the Wooley Bugger was the hot fly as far as numbers of fish caught, Rusty brown and olive were the two colors used. My biggest fish went 15 inches but I couldn't fit my hand around him. Big shoulders on that boy. several others of the same length but not as buff were caught.

Congrats on a great C&R trip! I'll channel my inner BilletHead and say that some pictures with the post would have been great. Particulary that 15 inch fatty or one of the 21 inchers. Since it was the trout park no need to worry about extracting the GPS from the photos☺.

I am sorry for the lack of pictures. My camera is not waterproof so I don't usually carry it. I wasn't near enough to get pictures of the big fish anyway. If you want to see some of the pictures that were taken by my two friends and find a great organization. That welcomes new members go to, https://www.flyfishersatthecrossing.org/.look in the trips page for the latest trip to Meramec Spring. I am the good looking fella with the green hat and fancy shades. I can not say enough good things about the FATC group so you should check them out.

I was about to head there today, but then I tore a muscle playing indoor soccer last night. Sounds like I had the right idea. 

How long did it take to bring in those 21 inchers?

I just caught up with Ken and Jim when they had the first one in the net. The second one didn't.take very long. Ken had a four weight Sage and has been fishing in a lot of places and is very experienced. I am sorry about the torn muscle. If you check out the pictures in the website I posted you will see I avoid situations where I might tear anything.

Sounds like a great trip....very nice meeting you on Friday at the show in Collinsville :)

I enjoyed meeting all of you at the show. Hogwally seemed stoked with the way things were going. It's great being able to meet the people whose post you read on the forum. You guys looked like you were doing really well. I gave a few of the samples you gave me to my brother to try on the creeks he fishes out of Desoto. He was realy thrilled. Hope to meet up again.

That is great news to hear decent fish are still being caught at MSP

 

As far as FATC goes.   A friend invited me to to go MSP during last year's C&R.  I did not know we were going to be meeting with a small group from  FATC, but I had a blast and what nice people they are.  Please keep up the great work and fellowship. 

Later,

FFM

Flyfishmaster, your right, the FATC group is kind of special. They have made me a better fisherman. I was back to the park on Thursday and just happened to talk to the hatchery manager. They had released some more fish on Friday and they were releasing more on the thirteenth (Friday).
