Woohoo! downloading it now. I've got my 5 wt all ready to go, flies all freshly tied and a ice cold 6 pack waiting for me back at home that I can enjoy while telling my buddies the tale of the monster brown I pulled out of the river. Here we go!!

Howdy Folks,

How's everyone enjoying Church Coulee? Pretty quiet around here today. Is everyone still out fishing? Boy, that's a lot of water to cover isn't it!

I fished it a while last night and had a really great time. Biggest fish was a pretty little 13 inch brown.

How'd the rest of you do?

Tight Lines,

Getting tried moving around

This is one site that we will be doing a lot of walking I caught a couple of 12 inchers it is nice to have another creek that demands a little more accuracy with your casts. I'm over shooting some right now, keep the fly in the water.

Thanks carol for letting us all to fish, and this is a great choice.

I've spent the most important time of my life fishing. What was left over I wasted.

It reminds me of my home stream in the Catskills! I lightly fished it all last night just to see the pools! I did get a 17" & a 23" and several 13" and the rest were small! I'll fish it taking more time soon.
Glad everyone is getting to enjoy it with me! Keep us posted on how you do!

Beautiful little stream, nice job, Paul :!: :
It reminds me of the many small streams my bro's and I fishing as kids here in the Willamette Valley. We could wade most any place as the deepsest holes were about 4 feet deep and many streams were only 10 fee wide or so. We would slowly walk the up stream so the fish wouldn't be spooked. (most fish face up stream to catch insects, etc floating down at them). We called these small streams "Creeks". :wink:

When we spotted a feeding trout, we'd sneak up (hands and knees) so the fish wouldn't see us. We made sure our shadows weren't on the water too. Then we'd flick our fly (not over 20 feet cast most of the time), and let the fly drift to the fish. These hungry little native Rainbows and Brookies would really attack the flies. :wink:

Church brings back some wonderful memories. :wink:
I finally finished fishing all the sites. I caught fish in every hole from mostly 7 to 13 inches, but did nail a 26" Brown.
Next time I fish it, it will be on Expert Mode, with the lightest tackle in the game. I'm sure I'll lose that 26 incher. (I think there are bigger ones) :wink:

I think this stream will bring back memories for most fly fisherman! I caught a 25" just before Cutch posted his 26"! It's so much better to catch a big fish in a small stream!

Hi Cutch,

I think this the beautifull of RWFF: it's a "real" simulation that brings emotions (and memories!) like in real life. :wink:

A good cast, the rigth fly, the big fish where you tought it was and so on! 8)

Church Creek is the river I would like to have near home! :roll:
Thx Paul!

I got one of the "bosses" living in there: a 25 brown with 7X and the smallest rod; 10 minutes of fun!

@Paul, did you change the pictures of the"jumping fish"? They looks better than previous! Good job! :D

Tight lines!

Ciao a tutti! :P

This little river is great! I love that I have to really check my casts on most parts, and having to dead drift to get the fly right where I want it. I have to admit if the AI in this game is as close to nature as it seems I'm learning just as much about where fish hold and presentation as I do on the river :) This stream offers a great learning curve when hunting wary trout :)

Thanks Paul and Carolmo, super river to fish. So far only managed to fish about half the sites. Looking forward to trying the rest.
