I have heard from some guys that there are some (they catch them). The hatchery reports says not very many but it said the pink run there were only 46 this year. I saw that many plus more that never made it to the hatchery.powder said:Are there really that few a steely's that come up the Carbon?
true that. i love being able to wake up at whenevever i want and go to a river that is only twenty minutes away. i have hooked fish in that river, even though its not a BC or a reiter its still fun.uscg said:I have been fishing the Carbon/Little Puy for about three years now and I can count on 2-3 fish each winter. I know that doesn't sound like alot, and it's alot of work, but it's so sweet when all the time and work pays off and you actually hook one. The trade-off is the beautiful scenery, and relative lack of pressure compared to the bigger, more popular spots like Reiter, Blue Creek, etc. Sometimes I can go down on a Saturday morning, especially when it's reallllllllly cold and be the only one there. I saw 6 eagles down there last weekend. The Carbon doesn't get a big run, but thy're in there, if you want to work for it and put some time on the water. Another plus for the Carbon is the amount of access you have. If the water is low, you can pretty much fish the entire stream from the mouth to Voight's with a set of waders. Pretty nice.
