Deception creek is STERILE!! Well, not really. But the upper portion of it, up close to the pass, is some of the prettiest water I have ever seen. Gin clear (even when the lower portion is dirty) and incredibly fishy looking. But not a single trout or grayling to be seen.
I've fished it a couple times pretty hard, and tried to enjoy it for the scenery alone, but I've never seen so much as a minnow up there.
I know this is largely a 'flippin Keani' crowd but has anyone had any luck up that way? If so, what time of year was it?
I've heard that Kings run up it, but have never seen any fish or even carcasses up there.
I'd love to visit it some time when the fish are there.
Any intel would be much appreciated!
