Location: from the Poplar on S.E. bank to the the end of the radius on the next curve
Poachers Bend has the most productive spring on the westerly bank right at the bend. During the restoration, this pool was deepened and cleared of sediment which allowed more spring water to seep in through the modified streambed creating a thermal refuge primarily in the summer and winter. The bend itself has a 4' channel holding significant numbers of trout. These waters are best fished from the easterly point bar. There are several subsurface rock outcrops adding productive features to the water. Be sure to work the entire run as the length of the channel runs the entire 300' of the beat.
