Rockwell Springs Trout Club

Discussion in 'Fish on the Fly' started by Hetfieldinn, Aug 2, 2007.

  1. Forum member Trout7 invited me and ShortDrift out for a day of fly fishing at Rockwell Springs Trout Club. ShortDrift and Trout7 are veteran fly fishermen. I can't really remember ever having a fly rod in my hands. The clubhouse and grounds of this club were beautiful. We enjoyed a fantastic breakfast, then went outside for a very quick lesson in fly fishing (for me). I was all thumbs at first, and clearly out of my element, but was willing to give it a go. I ended up catching eight brook trout, and 12 rainbows. ShortDriftcaught just as many brookies, more rainbows, and ended the day with a brown trout. Trout7 certainly caught his share of fish. It was amazing watching those guys work dry flies, and watching the fish come up and inhale them. I started getting the hang of it (or doing a bit better at it) when it was time to go home.

  3. Yeah RS is pretty cool, Ive fished there maybe a dozen times, even taken a steelie there, nice water with what they have to work with there on such a small space on Little Pickerel Creek, fishing is always good there since when you pay that kind of money, it should be.
    Thanks for the photos....

  4. I was actually shocked at how cheap it is to be a member and fish there.
     
  5. Gotta thank Trout 7 for a super day of trout fishing. It has been several years since I cast a dry fly for trout and enjoyed it more than you can imagine. Ending the day with the Brownie was really GREAT!
     
  6. Is there a website or number I can call to get info on this Trout Club? Thanks.
