It has been called: "The best 1/4 mile of trout fishing in the world" and "The Jewel of Trout Streams." Here is the new one "The Spoiler." As the saying goes "spare the rod and spoil the child" ...we think not. It is more like "use the rod, and spoil the child." A Fly Rod of course. We are speaking of Dry Run Creek, a 3/4 miles of spring and hatchery effluent fed water that benefits from the cold oxygenated water that comes from around 150' below the surface of Lake Norfork. It is then oxygenated and pumped into the 50 runs in the world's largest cold-water fish hatchery. The hatchery supplies enriched food to the growing trout that remain in the concrete runs until they reach a length required by game and fish managers. Typically that size is 6" for Cutthroat and Browns, and, 11" for Rainbows. Not that there is a lot of food that goes to waste in these runes, but what has left flows out of the hatchery and into the creek that is adjacent to the hatchery. This creek has its own food source. Sowbugs, scuds, worms, grasshoppers, ants, and eggs. Everything that you would find in the river, but more concentrated. There is no good reason for these fish to leave Dry Run Creek, and some probably don't.
