Wondering if anyone has found creek chubs in the 10 inch + range around the Bismarck area or am I wasting my time looking any that size. If you know of any, have any info on this feel free to PM me and you all have a good Fall. dukgnfsn

Ive never caught any that large, 4-6 inches is more common around here.

10 inchers won't fit in a trap. You'd have to catch them. It would be tough to get em that big.

Any business savvy folks think it could be profitable to start a supply chain from WV? These things are like flies where I grew up.

Call me full of myself, but I'm pretty sure no one has caught as many 10" creek chubs as myself on this web page, and I can tell you it's maybe 1-2 per year. That's like asking for 14 pound walleyes for bait.

Drifting the high plains
Years ago my brother and I caught large chubs on dry flies and kept them in a stock tank. I dont remember ever seeing a 10 inch. Many six inch and a rare eight inch. What I do remember is walking along the creek that had a four foot deep spot maybe two feet wide and 20 feet long spaced 20 feet apart. So they wouldn't see us we used a long pole with about six feet of line and when we dropped a fly a dozen or more fish would try take it.

Can you catch these year around in the creeks or is this a seasonal thing?

If you can get a bait to them they can be caught. They're much more voracious in late spring/summer and a pain in the ass if you're after trout. I could get 100+ a day back in the Hills.

Actually, I can't recall catching one in the ass-crack of winter, the creeks/streams are bigger in The Hills. When they're "on"; THIS (or similar) is THE ticket:
