I Almost Fell Out Of The Chair

This post is more for the locals, but I was cruising out on the DFG fish stocking site and I made a shocking discovery. This week they are stocking Silver Fork of the American River. I think the last time they stocked this creek, I was still in diapers. OK, it hasn't been quite that long, but I think the last time was before Silver Fork went on the "no Stock list" back in, maybe 2008.

I fished it last summer with my fly rod and caught one small rainbow, as I recall, but had written it off since it's been forever since they stocked it. I figured it now fell into the same category as the Cosumnes as a non-stocking creek. Definately a Tenkara creek. 

I consider this huge that they are stocking it again. Now if they can only get up to Bear River, Silver, Caples, and Red Lakes. So many places to fish, so little time.

    1. OK buddy. Hop on a plane and we'll get to it, but don't take too long, Shad will be gone by the end of the month.

  2. I don't know if it can be done, but shad on a Tenkara rod, now that's a battle.

    I wish I had more trout places near me as you do, but that is the downside when you are living in an area that don't put much stock in trout fishing.
