    Default Mossy Creek 2/19/17

    Hit Mossy Creek Sunday morning with a couple friends. We mostly fished the upper section. This was the first time I have ever been to Mossy and it is quite different from fishing the mountain streams near where I live. The water is stained and there is various forms of aquatic vegetation growing in the stream. Although most of the creek is in open fields, the large amount of tall dead weeds and grass along the bank make for tricky back casts and tangles in stripped line at your feet. We had around a dozen bites but only landed 4 and they were all caught on streamers. The highlight of the day was a 20" brown that put up one heck of a fight. It jumped and went on multiple runs into the moving water above and below the pool I caught it in.

    i live less than 3 miles from Mossy creek you did well there. The water is always stained by the way.

    We are told that we shouldn't judge all Muslims by the actions of an extreme few. Why can't we offer millions of law-abiding American gun owners the same consideration?
