Mcgee creek flyfishing and then some...
« on: May 25, 2017, 11:02:58 PM »
Just as we did last year,  Salim and I took a quick trip up the McGee and hammered the big cutts.  Salim secured the services of local guide Joe Contaldi once again this year and we got trout up to about 27 inches....



In the afternoon we took a ride up Rock creek,  the water was roaring everywhere,  but we were told the true heavy runoff had not even begun!  With this weeks warm weather that's bound to change!  FYI,  don't be afraid to try the saturday evening prime rib special at Tom's  :clap:



Once I arrive at Tom's Place...well,  you know...nothing else matters...

Canít go wrong with a local guide!  Beautiful Cutts. :clap:

Can't ever recall that much water running thru that creek...I wanted to fish there on my trip 2 weeks ago but I had a terrible back ache and there was no way I could walk the distance...
