This is a good place to hook a trout on a small fly because once the bait is embedded in the gristle of the corner of the jaw, it will not come out easily. If you are hooking most of your fish in the front of the mouth, you are striking too quickly and may miss a lot of fish. Mil/igan Creek also has lots of willows that hang out over the water. The trout love to get back under these to feed. Sometimes the only way to get a fly back under these willows is to use a long leader and float it down to the fish. I have played cat and mouse with a smart brown under the willows for hours before catching him or giving up. If you go upstream far enough, the water comes out of a cave in the hillside. Before I got the shakes from run-ins with rattlesnakes and cop- perheads,'l used to crawl back be- tween the rocks of the cave to drop a nightcrawler into the deep pool behind the rocks. I caught a few but most of the fish came from right at the mouth of the cave. When the water was up, some big ones would come out, but I was never able to catch any of them. Those were some good times when life seemed simpler. I hope to try that again th}s spring. I will take my fly rod to work with me and try to explain that the traffic is the reason I need a two-hour lunch break.
