Didn't arrive at the property until around 10:30. Parked the truck & looked down at the beaver pond below & fish were rising calling us to hurry up. Once gowned up & on the water had a lot of fun. My wife started in the beaver pond with a royal wulff & had one of the big boys on but lost it. I started downstream with a size 16 royal stimi & immediately caught a nice 15" bow (after missing 2 fish!). After lunch I tried the beaver pond with a size 14 orange stimi. I was skipping it back towards me when I hooked into one of the big 'bows that inhabit the deep pools in the pond. I was using my 3 wt. & had fun with a good fight but eventually lost the fish. Bottom line- 12 -15 browns (10" range) & the one 'bow. All landed on either royal stimi or royal wulff. Called it quits around 2:00 when the thunderstorms started building. Lots of fun-will return. Wild flowers beautiful! ~ Stu -- July 13th, 2014

What still running high, but clear. Outside of the beaver ponds this property is tight. Spotted lots of fish, couldn't entice them with a variety of wet and dry offerings. ( Club Pres. Jimmy Stogner says roll cast and slowly strip small BH black or olive wooly buggers in the deep pools when all else fails on those big, stubborn rainbows. ) ~ Jason -- June 29th, 2014

Pretty little property that reminded me of the one time I fished in rural England. Trees form a canopy over the creek that requires a reasonable amount of side casts. I visited the creek during run-off. Flows were relatively high but given the small size of the stream it was still reasonable to wade. I fished from 10:30am until 2pm and caught about 6 fish in the 10-13 inch range. I had to fish in just a handful of sections of slow water that I could find and in each I was able to land a fish or two. I used green copper john and prince nymphs. ~ Ed -- July 4th, 2013

First time fishing this property, so I probably spent more time exploring than fishing. I fished the afternoon from about 1:30-6:30. Fish were a little on the spooky side with a bright sun above and water a little on the skinnier side. Fishing was good, could have been better. I probably landed 10-12 fish, mostly 6-12” browns. I also caught a couple 16-18” rainbows, and a few others that broke off. Fished a variety of caddis, beetles, hoppers and streamers. Streamers worked best for the bigger fish toward the end of the day. There is some good habitat on the property that has the potential of holding bigger fish. ~ lowcountrymountaineers -- May 8th, 2013

Had a great day on this beautiful property. I began fishing around 8 am using a Royal Wolff on top trailing a small bead head pheasant tail nymph below. I started in the creek directly below the dam of the large beaver pond at the parking area. There are nice holes in the steam that all seem to hold at least one fish. I hooked a fish on my first cast which turned out to be a good indication of what was to come. The fish are healthy, strong, and plentiful and are not particularly picky about your choice of fly. Much more important is a stealthy approach as the fish can be quite spooky if they see you or detect your cast overhead. That said, if you are willing to tip-toe around and hide behind the willows and cast from your knees, you will be successful. Over the period of 8 hours fishing I landed countless fish, all but one on dry flies. In fact, I fished strictly dry flies after about the first 20 minutes once it became apparent the fish were wiling to rise to my dry. I landed several fish over 20" and about twice that many took me to school making multiple jumps then dashing under the banks and into the submerged brush. Very fun and exciting. I do want to mention that you will be challenged by lots of bushes and snags to hang up your casts so be prepared to untangle your stuff as the day wears on. As for flies, I used stimulators, a foam caddis, the Royal Wolff, and a fairly bushy adams. My selection was mainly based on what I would be able to see floating out there since the fish seemed willing to take any well-presented fly. Fish the creek and the beaver ponds as both have good fish populations. Have fun! ~ Dan P. -- June 17th, 2012
