Morgan Run Trout
Location: Morgan Run
The day after DNR stocked this year, I found two dozen trout in this section of Morgan Run, all willing to follow everything I threw at them for an hour but none brave enough to strike. Yesterday was quite the opposite--not a trace of a fin in the crystalline stream. However a blind cast under the big limb in the background produced an instant hit and I landed a nice Rainbow Trout. Encouraged, I worked the stretch thoroughly and still failed to draw out any follows with my spinner, but I did manage another on-the-drop hookup pictured here. Maybe they were the only two fish in the area, but I'm glad they were aggressive.
Craving slightly more action, I drove to the Bowers Road access where I encountered two fly fisherman who advised me the fish in this area were rejecting spinners but seemed to be going for a worm imitation. I hit several bends downstream from them and finally achieved success with my Crème red plastic worm at the onset of darkness (photo 2). Thanks for the tip, guys. And thanks to DNR for stocking Morgan Run pre-season.
