Dude, where you been? PL is my stomping grounds and there sure is some game out there. BUT this WMA gets a ton of pressure from a LOT of hunters. No worries, it is beautiful and so long as you dont get too caught up on the harvest part of the hunt, it will bring you great joy
There are Trout in the creeks as they get stocked regularly............my kid and I were lucky enough to be out there one day while they were stocking trout at the second Bridge with a bunch of youth campers. My Nicholas got to help out and it was a magical day for sure
I will try to post a pic or two for you...........
He got out but then getting his boot out was the next obstacle
My kid is 13 now and is the batter in my Avatar.......watching him grow up has been a joy. Pinelog is a big part of our lives and has been for some time. Come out and enjoy it.................just dont let failure of harvest get in the way of what is most important
Stamp Creek used to be a really good trout stream. It has become a "catch every fish that was just dumped from the stocking truck" kind of stream. Nothing much to be found about an hour after the truck dumps them in.
The place to go is 1.5-2 miles up the dirt road across the creek from the check station on Stamp Creek Church Rd. If the gate is open, drive in. If not, then ride a horse, bike, or walk. There will be a side road to your left, with a concrete bridge. That is where they dump the stockers.
If you go there, check out the old furnace about 100 yds upstream of that concrete bridge, across the creek from the main dirt road. There are at least 3 more old furnace in Pine Log. One is right behind the check station, but it has collapsed pretty badly. The 2 other furnaces require some bushwhacking to get to, but are well worth the effort.
On second thought, what I described might be a good scenario for briefly introducing a youngster to trout fishing. I was just trying to let you know that it gets pretty crowded when there are trout in there. That might out-weigh the positives for you.
