Tag Archives: Stoner Creek fishing


My nephew David and I fished Stoner Creek today. The reason we are fishing so much together is that we were suppose to fish the New River this weekend, but the water is to high. It was a tough day. The fish we caught were in the 12 to 14 inch range but they were very scattered. The strange thing was that they were on mud banks and not around much cover. We caught them on shallow crankbaits and a few on plastic craws. At about 5 pm it was like someone turned them off. We couldn’t find them. We finished the day with only 34 and we had several nice smallie’s. I think we are going to try some lake fishing tomorrow. Till the next report, hope to see you on the water.


Stoner Creek Fishing

I decided to go the Frymans on Stoner Creek and do some fishing. The water had alittle stain to it, 80 degrees and was up maybe 6 inches with current. Most of the creek is covered in duck weed. I thought I could catch some bass on a frog in the duck weed. I can tell you that was a waste of time. I never had a fish hit it. I went up into Stroge Creek and was able to find clear water. The bass were hitting small shallow running crankbaits. I know that most fishermen don’t like it when there is bright sunlight. Durring the summer I do because it helps me locate the fish. On bright days I will mainly fish a few areas. I will always cast to shaded water or if there is current above and below riffles. I had a very good day today. I only caught 5 or 6 bass that was smaller than 10 inches. My biggest was around 2.5 lbs. The surprise was I caught 11 smallmouths and they were all longer than 10 inches. My biggest was around 2 lbs. For a small creek that is some good size fish. I ended the day boating 52 bass, so all I can say is the fish are biting. I hope to fish Elkhorn tomorrow and will give a report. Till then hope to see you on the water. I forgot to add that if you go to Stoner be sure to take bug spray, The biting bugs get real bad late in the afternoon.
