  1. So far it’s just me and John. I still plan to drive down Friday and stay overnight. If anyone just wants to drive down, fish until dusk and drive home or drive down Saturday and fish the morning hatch and go home or stay and also fish the evening dusk hatch then go home … that’s fine too, but I would like to have some idea about who to expect, so please register online here. I also need to know if anyone is planning to float the creek (from Broken Bridge to Knight’s Bridge – about 1 1/2 miles). If not, I will not be bringing my kayak, I’ll just wade & fish.

  2. Hello All, Where is the original meeting spot for this trip and when will everybody be getting there? I have floated this stretch a bunch but have never wade fished it. I plan on wade fishing tomorrow and possibly saturday.
