While fishing the Racehorse
during the past week-end, I noticed that spincasters and flyfishermen
alike raced to their favorite spots, trying to head off later arrivals.
It was then that I began thinking that Racing Fishermen would be
a more appropriate name for the Creek.
Another possible name could be Grizzly Creek, as if there are not
enough scary names already. Late Sat. evening four of us watched
a grizzly eat berries just off the road a hundred yards or so from
us. It wasn't until we slowly drove past him before he woofed, and
then headed for the bush from where he watched us. I hope to have
some of the photos of him in the gallery section soon.
Fishing for cutts in the Creek is okay if you don't mind making
long detours aroung around other fishers and an occasional grizzly.
The host and hostess at the campground are very helpful in giving
ideas where to go fishing.
