Rulland's Coulee 9/11/11

Rulland's Coulee empties into the Timber Coulee. Like the stream it pays tribute to, it's an indistinguishable spring creek, smaller than the Timber Coulee. It runs through cow pasture and has relatively few access points compared to the very accessible Timber Coulee.

Conditions were 80 degrees and perfectly clear, which meant for ultra-spooky fishing. There are some huge browns in this creek, though none encountered my hook.

A much smaller cousin did fall for a #14 pink squirrel drifted through riffles 18 inches under an indicator, at 3:30 in the afternoon.
