    Default Don't give up! Parks still hot!

    Don't put that fly rod away just yet! The fishing on the parks is still red hot. I landed nearly 200 (yes 200) grayling this weekend up north along with a few nice bows. Fish are feeding heavily in preperation for winter. Olive buggers and beads were the ticket, but they are hitting just about anything right now. Concentrate on the
    mouths where they meet the big su. I will post some pics when i get a chance, on the iphone right now

    The funny part is he has already told every one where to go and 200 grayling if you hit it right thats like 4 hr of fishing. Really I've had it be up to like 50 an hr and thats no bull

    I would go a bit farther north if you want to catch something. Not saying the Willow is fishless by any means though...
