Second stop was trusty Pine Creek off of Wildwood Road. I hit the the spots on the second parking area. I tagged a few small blue gills. The monster cat I caught a few weeks ago was cruising the creek and actually parked himself under a rock that was no more than 3 feet from the bank. He wasn't playing ball as I think the pressure on that spot has been heavy as I had to clean up an abandoned Cheetos bag, blue work container and water bottle. I moved down about 50 yards to the abandoned bridge structure where the were catfish were visible and holding steady in the current but not biting.
Third stop was Pine creek off of Sample Road before Bryant Road. Nice water back there. I took the right path off of the lot which ended in a decent bend and flat on the creek. Fished it for about an hour looking for bass to no avail. Took a walk down stream to check out structure but it remained very rocky and flat with limited holding. On the way back I saw a dead minnow on shore and decided to hook it up. I cast into a dark hole and 30 seconds later... POW! hooked one of the last spring trout! The water temperature was warm and I did not expect to see that rainbow on the end of my line.
A great way to end the day!

Took my fishing buddy out into Pine Creek today for a father / daughter adventure. We fished for about three hours on a 1/4 mile stretch of Wildwood Road. We picked up a few carp and a few small catfish and bass. We cracked a couple of Mountain Dews, took in the sunshine and chatted about the 26 inch catfish that swam in front of us and rudely ignored our bait.
