Rainbows in Friends Creek
Region: North Central
Location: Friends Creek-Frederick County Maryland
I just got back from my Friends Creek fishing trip on Friday October 19th. I caught 4 chunky rainbow trout and missed a big fat one at the end of the day that made a nice jump. This year the trout are fat and all put up a good fight. I found trout in the small pools or runs as well as the big pools-all caught on a wooly bugger. The fall foliage is pretty and there are still some trout left in the stream. People told me it was stocked 2 weeks ago. I always come up to Friend's Creek as it seems I have good luck in this stream. October should be a good month for fishing. Did not see any lunkers but those might come with the spring stocking. Tight lines all.
