Piru Creek Wild Trout

Piru Creek Wild Trout - Frenchman's Flat

The bite is slow on Piru Creek after the rain storm earlier this month, but I did manage to find this beauty in a deep pool with a Caddis nymph fished without a strike indicator.  It was over 14" and really had some fight in it.  Wild trout, in my opinion, are some of the hardest fighting freshwater gamefish pound-for-pound.

Piru Creek - Blue Point and Beyond

A short photo journey of my long hike to the closed Blue Point campground above Lake Piru on Piru Creek.  I was skunked, so all I have to show for my sore legs and back are these pictures.
