Suburban Creek Bassin'

We looked at each other, back to the water, then again to each other.  This is where we were going to be fishing?  The stream, which drains a large section of city before entering a local lake, was inches deep.  The sandy bottom did not look conducive to fishing, and I was stuck wondering whether or not we were making a mistake. 

Worried that it was going to be a day of pushing rather than paddling and dragging rather than floating, we proceeded to launch and meander down the creek.  It wasn’t long before we were doing just what we had feared – dragging, pushing, pulling, and working very hard with no results.  But, around every corner it got a little deeper and a little more tempting.  Before long, we were floating, fishing, and happy we had decided to stick it out.  So, before you write off that small, neighborhood creek – check this out!

    Nice – looks like great times, Too bad the ‘rivers and creeks’ in So Cal don’t look anything like yours. Which state are you in? What were you using and what were you catching?

    Thanks guys! Steve, this was filmed in central North Carolina. I can imagine the concrete creeks of SoCal look a little different. We were throwing a mix of baits, but plastic worms and jigs worked best. We focused on largemouth bass and landed some from 1-4.5 lbs, however the creek has panfish and catfish as well. Tight lines!

    Boy that sure beats the river I fished this weekend. The lack of rain here in North Texas has made it a creek but the silt was over my knees and would pull the boots off my waders. Very good looking place.
