Angler Name: Skip Nault

Angler Age: 78

Angler Home: Wooster

Fishing Tackle: Fly Fishing

Fish Caught: Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout Caught: 3

Comments: Fished for 3 hrs in the afternoon. Hooked four trout landing 3, the last one a 19-inch, 3-pound- jumper, bigger than some of the steelhead I caught this fall. Water flow was great wth one foot of visibility. Best fly was a pink sucker spawn.

There were about a dozen other anglers, both fly anglers and spin fishers, and all were having a great time catching and releasing rainbows. THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR PRACTICING CATCH AND CAREFUL RELEASE. One young fellow I talked to from Akron comes down to fish often. He said he is totally obsessed with fishing the creek and thanks Trout Unlimited form making Apple creek a trout fishery. Another angler claimed Apple Creek is the best trout stream in Ohio. CFRTU appreciates hearing from those who fish the stream.
