Thread: Willow Creek Anyone?

  1. #1

    Default Willow Creek Anyone?

    Okay,
    So can't decide between Kings on Willow Creek or Reds on Russian for this weekend???? Friday is the last weekday to fish the Willow, and I am kind of anti-combat fishing. So I am leaning toward the Willow, but also want to come back with fish....
    Any reports from anyone that has fished the Willow in recent days as to whether or not there are Kings there yet?

    Do yourself a favor and go hit the reds. Reports at the store have been pretty bad for Willow. Have been a few caught but not very many.

    I fished the Willow on Tuesday for trout and saw two kings roll and zero caught.

    I am heading up north this weekend. I will be fishing Willow on Saturday. Like you, I figured I would try before it goes to weekend only fishing. I will go to Russian next week.

    I would hit the Russian, you will actually catch fish there, and not beat the water for hours with no result.

    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
