Flat Laurel Creek

Imagine a creek with nothing but waterfalls stacked on top of waterfalls. Imagine a fishing trip with a seemingly endless supply of brook trout just begging to be caught. That was how I spent last Sunday. I started up Flat Laurel Creek at its confluence with the West Fork of the Pigeon river and fished my way up to where the trail by the same name intersected the creek. For a good while the terrain was technical enough that I stowed my fishing pole and concentrated on not getting hurt but the whole time the scenery was simply amazing and I had a hard time believing I hadn't been there before. I hiked along the trail for a little bit and then descended the unnamed creek starting at Wildcat Falls. That creek was too tight to fish but did contain two waterfalls including a very nice one at the confluence with the West Fork. Once I started down the West Fork back to the truck the fishing got really good with me pulling fish out of almost every pool I threw a line into.
