It is no secret that I like to fish the small streams with a light weight fly rod this time of year. It’s a great way to beat the heat of our hot summer afternoons, and these streams are usually loaded with small rainbow or cutthroat. They provide me with hours of entertainment. Knowing this, Travis Maitland, who is the District Biologist for Region 2, gave me a call. He reminded me that in this year’s Fishing Rules pamphlet there are several streams that are open to fishing. Many have not been open for at least three years. He told me about a stretch of Nason Creek up near Smith Brook that he tried recently, and found it loaded with just the kind of trout that I like. He also mentioned that White Pine Creek, which is accessed up Highway 2 past Cole’s Corner that is also lots of fun. He said that you need to hike about a mile up the stream to where the trail meets the creek, but it is worth the hike. It is also loaded with small trout. These are just a couple of places that are now open to fishing. I am going to study the pamphlet and see what other streams I can explore this summer.
