Piru Creek Feb 2010 Report

Print E-mail

Frenchman's Flat at Piru Creek - Report for Feb 2010 with Video:  I snuck out of work early and headed to the creek in hopes of getting a couple of the small, but beautiful, wild Rainbow Trout that occupy the waters.  The flow rate was about twice what I am used to seeing at this time of year and this combined with the stained water made it a tough afternoon.

Piru Creek - A Great Place to Learn

Print E-mail

Last weekend I took the son of my very good friend fishing on Piru Creek.  His name is Michael and he has picked up a lot - fast.  It's amazing to me 1) to remember how hard it is to learn - there are so many little things I do without thinking now 2) how much teaching for just a few hours helped to sharpen my own skills and 3) that anyone who wants to learn should have at least a basic understanding of how difficult this sport can be.  Michael gets #3, which makes him a great student and will ultimately make him a great angler.

Christmas Day Fishing

I hit Piru Creek - the upper section - on Christmas Day.  It was a pretty slow day fishing-wise, but just about any day on the water is refreshing.

Black Gnats at Piru Creek

Print E-mail

The Black Gnats are back in force at Piru Creek.  I've metioned before that I call these little suckers "flying ticks", and maybe that's what pissed them off.  I went fishing with Hank (my Golden Retriever) yesterday for less than two hours, but it's going to cost me a week of painful itching.

Under the Bridge

Print E-mail

I've never done very well under the bridge at Piru Creek, so being a glutton for punishment I tried it again last Thursday.  I caught a few and missed a few more.  All of them were smallish, but it was fun to fish a different area.  I only had about 2 hours and walking all the way up to the C&R section wouldn't have left me with much fishing time.

Frenchman's Flat - Oct 09 Report

Print E-mail

I went back to an old favorite - Piru Creek, Frenchman's Flat and fished at Concrete Falls.  This place isn't a favorite because it's beautiful - although it's prettier than my office - and certainly not for the size of fish - I have caught a few nice ones though - nope, it's just because it's where I started.  The falls remind me of when even a single catch with a fly rod eluded me time after time.  Now it's only sometimes, and I'm glad for it.

 

My report and a short low-quality video follow.

Piru Creek Oct 2009 Report

The water is very skinny and most of the decent pools that I am used to fishing on Upper Piru Creek are nothing more than puddles.

Piru Creek - Near Frasier Park

Print E-mail

It took some wasted gas, a handheld GPS and a lot of hiking, but I found the water.  Not much in the way of fish, but certainly worth the effort for the view.  The flows in the photos are much higher than can usually be expected at this time of year - I took them shortly after the storm around Thanksgiving.

Piru Creek has a lot of character in places (that haven't been tagged), and I really enjoy searching for a honey hole.  I haven't found it yet, but I don't mind looking.
