Jfk Park 4-5-08


Recommended Posts

With the lower Little Red still out of its banks (the community of Georgetown has been cut off for almost three weeks), the COE decided not to generate on Saturday. I got to the park about 11:30 and connected on my first drift. I ended up with around 15, with one good slot fish and bunch of real pretty stockers. I noticed two things on this trip: the first was a number of dead walleye and hybrids, I was wondering if they got pulled through the dam or what. The other was the number of total idiots who were at the park. I've never seen so many discurteous people in my life. While I was fighting the slot fish, I had a guy run (not walk, but run) to the spot where I was fishing. As I was walking upriver with the fish to keep it out of the moss, he made sure he was standing in the same spot I'd been in. After I unhooked my fish, I resumed fishing. He then decided that my indicator was a good target for his casts and he almost put his fly on my indicator. That was it for me, I walked away rather than have words. Of course, he didn't catch anything because he was fishing for the elusive Little Red flying trout. I also had two guys walk about 5' from me and start chunking hardware, which put all of the fish in the hole down. I guess that's what you get when its "public" access. Of course, the rest of the river is muddy, so that tended to concentrate the anglers in the park. Hot flies for me were the #16 tan zebra and a #16 rainbow warrior.

RR, I've got similar stories myself dating back to 1994. But I think it's true everywhere. But walking away, in the long run, is the best course of action, well,....usually. ;)
