Trout below Bedford lake
« on: January 31, 2012, 04:00:06 PM »
With all the high water recently I decided to fish a couple of spots in the creek that empties out of Bedford lake and into the Duck River close to Cortners Mill. I had not fished it in years but to my surprise I still caught a few rainbows in it. Got one 17" rainbow. Fishing these fish was like fishing for fish in a moutain stream...you got to stay hidden/low profile, move slowly and wear camo if possible. I imagine that it is a winter situation only. once the water heats up they must move back down to the Duck. Any one else ever had any luck in this stream?

A 17" rainbow from the Duck???  That's something you don't see every day for sure.

I agree. It had great color and no sign of fins being worn down from tanks at hatchery. Best I can figure is that it had been in there for a while. I know that some of the creeks in that area have springs that empty into them...seems to keep the water cold even in the summer.
