Battle Creek: , by Andrew Harris: Huge salmonflies!: 3 stars
I fished our private beat on Battle Creek today with Mike Corley.  This 3.5 mile stretch of water is brand new to us this year and I've been trying to learn my way around.  So far, I like what I see!  We fished a very rugged section of the creek this afternoon.  There were even more salmonflies today than when I fished with Dax on Saturday.  I saw some of the biggest salmonflies of my life today.  The largest were almost 3 inches long!  That explains why the fish didn't pay much attention to my dry flies until I tied on a size 6 foam giant stone imitation.  Many of the fish were too small to get hooked by this giant fly, but that didn't stop them from trying!  I had dozens of grabs and landed fish up to ten inches.  I lost a nice 12" bow and Mike and I both missed strikes from some larger fish.  This salmonfly hatch is in full swing and should stick around through the end of May.  We should start to see some golden stones soon.
