Big Piney Trip report

Recommended Posts

Friday I put in at Slabtown and went up the river about 6 miles.  Then floated back down the next day.  (Going up was challenging at times in this river!)  This was my first trip on this river and on my third cast I pulled in a 15 inch smallie and I had 3 smallies in 5 casts. Having never been on this river, I was immediately impressed! However, that was not a precursor of things to come. That 15 inch smallie was the best I got the entire 2 days. I did not catch a single largemouth.  And out of the google-eye, only one was 8 inches. I still caught a fair amount of fish for an August fishing trip.  We saw few people on the river.  The scenery is an added bonus excellent there. I definitely had the wrong boat for this river.  I was running in a 17 foot "cargo canoe," with a 9 hp motor.  I saw nothing but kayaks on the river.  Still, it was a nice trip for me and the wife and the fishing was good.
