Slough Creek is one of the most famous rivers in the world. It consists of four meadow sections.
The first is located very near the campground. The upper three involve at least a 2 mile hike in.
Our group decided to somewhat spit up with half the group going to second meadow which is about a 4.5 mile hike in.
The other half of the group was content with hitting the first meadow. Fish were very active on the surface with beetles being the main course in the first meadow and hoppers and caddiis in the second.
Fish were very particular on the drift though. All through out the day you could hear fish hitting the surface.
It sounding like a loud popping noise.
The day was beautiful and the surroundings were spectacular.
The fishing started off well and the catching got better as the day went on in the first meadow.
John and Kevin had an unlikely spectator for their fishing.
A buffalo wandered down to the bank an proceeded to watch them fish.
The second meadow proved to be worth the hike with everyone having a stellar day.
Several fish in the 16-18″ range were landed and released.
All in all it was a great day on a great river.
Around 8pm we sat down for a nice dinner of Pork tenderloin and baked veggies. And then the stories of the day carried into the late night. Check back tomorrow and see how the first two guide trips turned out. Tight lines!
