Hancock Tree Farm

One supposed to be sunny day, I headed to my version of a country club. I pay an annual fee and get acces to a 100,000 acre tree farm. The logging roads that scar the area give me access to water that nobody else visits. Well, I rarely see anyone else.

However, with the current high flows, one can often hear the water from the road. You just have to get through what is left of the forest. Step one is to find the edge of the forest.IMG_3169The next step is to try and find small trails through these ferns and downed trees.

When you make it through the ferns and forest you might arrive at a spot that looks perfect for anglers. I arrived sweating, tired, not very hopeful. However, a few casts later and I told Lando that it was all worth it.

As the rivers continue to drop, this place will simply get better and better. My go to fly is a #10 yellow stimulator. I may tie some tomorrow morning and hit this spot again!
