Pebble Creek - July 9, 2010

I went camping with my family at Big Springs Campground on Pebble Creek above Lava Hot Springs, Idaho. Friday evening I ventured out for about an hour and half to fish on Pebble Creek. Pebble Creek is a small stream with native cutthroat trout. Word to the wise - Pebble Creek is very brushy so casting is limited and you spend most of your time flipping your flies or doing small roll casts, but for someone who loves small streams it is a fun place to go. I ended up catching 9 fish - only one was 12". The rest were in the 8" or smaller category. I fishing a section that flows through a meadow about 1-2 miles downstream from the campground.

Hot flies: Beadheaded Prince Nymph (size 16)
