Default Deer Creek - It felt like Spring

I know going to DC is getting old but it's the only place we can float our boat.

Three of us fished it yesterday from our tubes/toon using fly tackle. We launched at the main state park ramp about 9:30 and fished until 2:30. We used sinking lines all the way from intermediate to a type 8 line and leech patterns in white, olive, and flesh color in sizes 6-8. We managed to pick up one brown and eleven rainbows. All of the fish were between 14" and 19" long.

The water temperature was 36 and the visibility in the water of about 8'.
The reservoir is nearly 77% full and rising.

There were three boats on the water and about a dozen shore anglers while we were there. The last time we fished it was 14 degrees at launch, this time it was 34 degrees and no wind. There was a lot more open water this time and we saw a couple of ice sheets move from down near the dam moving to the north. I'm not sure that the reservoir will completely freeze over this year.

It's pretty good you have ice fishermen on the north end and boaters and floaters in the middle.

I love fishing deer creek. 90% of the trips have been great action and fun. Not many BIG fish but at times the action has been fast. Thanks for the report.
