Eight of our TU anglers gathered expectantly on Thursday June 27 to survey fish stock in Caples Creek. Five members met at Safeway Pollock Pines and traveled to the Lake Margaret trail head on highway 88. Three other met at the Bank of America and went to the Fitch-Rantz Bridge on the Silver Fork. The team angled for 3-5 hours and caught a total of 17 fish. All were "small".
It was a beautiful day, the creek was clear and flowing and the fish were hiding or being selective. Some of our crew saw many fish but could not attract them. Meadows were wet with water. Mosquitoes were plentiful.
Erik Holst was high rod with 8 fish. Berni Bahro caught 4 and 3 or 4 caught the skunk.
