  • kings in deep creek

    hey, planning on going to deep creek over memorial weekend to try to hook some kings and was curious if anyone had any tips or tricks they wouldn't mind sharing. I already have a nice strong rod and reel setup with 50lb test, I just don't know what to fish with? any help would be greatly appreciated

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

      Drift fish yarn flies, spin-n-glos, or lil corkies. Set it up similar to the russian river setup, but DON'T BE A RIPPER!

      There will be plenty of other people there for you to watch regarding other techniques. Getting up early is a very good idea.

        Hardware on a downstream swing.

        Spinners work well in that creek.

        Cast across and slightly downriver, let it sink a bit by dropping the rod tip, and then tighten up. Reel just fast enough to keep the blade spinning and the hook off the bottom (sometimes not at all in faster current) as it swings back to your side of the river. At the end of the swing, slowly lift the rod tip to bring the spinner back to the surface then skip it on back up top as fast as you can to make the next cast.

        Lather
        Rinse
        Repeat

          Glow in the dark corkies work at night.

            Lather, rinse, ditto. Can be deadly.

            And to stress what Wyo2AK said, I'd even just not got to bed and fish right from the minute the river opens, catch your king and THEN go to bed. You'll wake up in the morning SOOOOO happy!
