Stoner Creek

To be honest I wanted to go anywhere but Stoner Creek. I couldn’t go to Elkhorn the Flow is way to high. I thought about Taylorsville but they have pulled the plug on it and they are dropping it over a foot a day. The

wind would have been very bad there also.  So Stoner it was. The good news is I met the guy who burned my carpet and he paid me for the damage. The water was up 3 to 4 inches with good current. The water was still a little murky but you could see down a foot to a foot and a half. I started with a 3 inch craw and caught a couple of decent fish on it. I went to a silver crankbait that would dive to about 4 feet. I caught several on it.  When I got into shallower water I went to a silver and black stickbait. I started getting a lot of hits with it. The largemouths were on wood near current. The Smallies were scattered. It seemed that I caught 2 sizes of fish, very small dinks and keepers or bigger. I loss a lot of fish today for some reason. I would have had a great day if I could have boated half of the fish I loss. Twice I hooked two fish on the same lure. The first broke one of my treble hooks. The second time was unbelievable. I hooked a fish that was about a pound and a half and a second fish came up and hit the lure with the fish on it. The second fish was 3 lbs or better. Try to land close to 5 lbs of fish at the same time. The larger fish final got off. I was fun while it lasted. The fish may be finally starting to school. I caught 3 to 6 fish in the same area a few times. I finished the day with 71. The smallies were running very small. I only caught 2 or 3 that were decent. My biggest fish landed was on a buzzbait beside a log in the middle of the creek. The fish are biting, you need to get out there. Till the next post hope to see you on the water.

    • I should have a video of yesterdays trip on YouTube and my Facebook page by tomorrow. If was a fun day caught some nice fish. I have people ask me all the time about catching bigger fish. Size is relative to size of the water you are on Strode is a small creek a monster fish there would be 4#. I caught some fish there yesterday that were pushing 3#. To me that was a great day. Beside I was using a light action rod with 6# line most of the day.
