LMAO! The talks about the Elk, I am heading there tomorrow for the cookout at Elksprings and throw some terrestrials and streamers!;):D
Anyways, Cold Creek is kind of boring as there is just a small area to repeatedly casts to the same spot. There are fish in there but northing like anywheree down here! I did spend a lot of days there in my early years since I lived right down the road and my great aunt owned the the house right next to the creek on Heywood. If you think the Elk has more bigger trouts then you really dont know much about down here as there is some other rivers down here that can compete with the elk on very large trouts. But I am not gonna to mention them cause of the friggin meatheads lurking to go rape the waters.

The largest fish that we have heard about this year was 34", and caught in the snag that is ~75 yds. downstream from the pavillion, below the two big Willows. We see a few Browns cruising in the pavillion pool, but getting to them is a trick...that is getting by the Rainbows.
If I wanted to target the big fish there, I would throw Christmas tree ornament sized tinsel flies. Lotsa' flash...in the sticks. Just sayin'.
