Many years ago I enjoyed dappling dry flies for brookies in Horsethief Canyon Creek.

"p.s. i'm aware of regulations :smile:"

I'm not aware of the "regulations" for these tributaries. Don't they follow the normal rules and regulations for the sierra district and there for would be under the same regulations as the West Carson because there are no "special fishing regulations" for the West C.?




(6) All other streams except those listed by name in the
Special Regulations.

Last Saturday in Apr. through Nov. 15
5 per day
10 in possession



Please correct me if I"m wrong and point me to the correct DFW page.

You are correct Trout Spanker. I've fished Red Lake Creek on many occasions. Lots of small Brookies and an occasional LCT.

Captain C,

If you fished Red Lake Creek in the late spring, if you were like me, you were fishing with one hand and swatting mosquitoes with the other hand.

LOL

Whew! Thanks CC. I fished Red Creek as well last year and although I released all of them lil brookies I was a bit nervous :nerves:that I missed something in the regs. Maybe I'll spank an LCT next time. Reminds me of fishing beaver dams in the Colorado Rockies.

Note: the limit for Brookies in Red Lake Creek and some of the other waters is 10 fish:

INCHES TOTAL LENGTH MAY BE TAKEN AND POSSESSED IN ADDITION TO THE OTHER DAILY BAG AND POSSESSION LIMITS SPECIFIED FOR THE SIERRA DISTRICT. THIS ALLOWANCE DOES NOT INCLUDE RED LAKE IN ALPINE COUNTY OR KIRMAN, LANE OR ROOSEVELT LAKES IN MONO COUNTY

Don. When you smoke as much as I do the skeeters tend to leave you alone. http://www.gifs.net/Animation11/Everything_Else/Peace_and_Hippies/Old_hippie.gif

I've often got into discussions about the use of scents on lures. On day at Block House on Pyramid I was having a discussion on this topic with a couple of other Sniffers I was fishing with. I'm somewhat of a skeptic on this. I had my usual indian cigrette in my hand, took a drag and spit on the lure I was using. Two casts later I hooked and landed the biggest LCT I've gotten in 40 years. I'm just sayin'.

Thanks again CC. Lil Wild Brookies are my favorite next to kokes for freshwater fish. Unfortunately the one's I caught were too small for my dinner plate and were left to swim another day. Such a small vulnerable area too. I once cleared out a creek/beaver damn over 20 years ago in Colorado when I was a kid, still feel guilty. I might try to limit out those 10 brookies at Crater Lake when the road gets good.

I forget the name, but the little creek that runs right behind the Kirkwood Inn is loaded with little Brookies........park next door to the Inn in the dirt parking lot and work your way downstream. 1/16oz or so spinners on UL gear, and its pretty steady action. when your done, the Inn serves up good food and beverages. its right in the area your talking about, try it out, it doesnt see much pressure, or at least ive never seen many anglers

Kirkwood creek and Caples creek have brookies. When I lived in Kirkwood i would hike down below the Kirkwood Inn and catch brookies and bows with the occasional brown on a fly. Beautiful area.

If you wear a hat throw one in there too. If the mosquitos are really thick, take the sheets from your pocket and rub on arms and neck then put back in pocket.
