It is a tiny creek just minutes from all the money and might of Silicon Valley. In some stretches the deepest part might be 4 inches. I have not fished this creek in a few years. It is closer than is reasonable and I have not fished it for an unreasonable length of time. I set out today to right this wrong and that’s what I did.
I think even The Trout Underground would approve of the expedition. Small stream, small fish, solitude and beauty. It was a nice way to spend a couple of hours. A park ranger stopped me as I walked back to my car… just to see how I’d done. “We don’t see too many fly fisherman these days.”
The fish are tiny. Maybe as long as my finger… maybe smaller. They are tiny, but what they lack in size they make up for in splendor, and that’s why I sought them out.
Here are some pictures from the trip.
