Fished with Christian Hill. Entered Battle Creek at Eagle Canyon from private property. Treacherous wading. Mountain Lions (didn't see any but they are there according to our contacts). Poison oak! Rattlers. Beautiful creek, a lot of wild Rainbows and spawning salmon. I hooked a salmon. Nymph lodged in it's mouth (no foul hook). Fought it for a while and lost it. Super fun experience. Dries and droppers. Very unique.
