When my younger bro (Jonah) came over today and asked if I wanted to head out in search of trout for a few hours at 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon and after a long night of thunderstorms, the only thought that came to mind was,"Let's do it!" We loaded up the gear and headed out for my nearby stream. I stopped on a bridge further down on the stream and discovered it was quite brown and running muddy. Oh well, I decided to head upstream and hoped for the best. When we arrived at our destination I was happy to discover the water was not nearly as bad, but still stained enough to make it a lot easier to sneak around without being spotted. We hopped out and headed for the first hole. We only ended up fishing about five holes on this trip but they were so productive that it took up most of our time. I stood on the bank and watched as my bro pulled some beauty Brookies and Browns from two dank holes. It was a short trip, but man was it fun seeing all of those fish taking the fly at 2:00 in the afternoon. The water was nice and cold and the fish were active. Here are a few pics of our adventure.
|Caught this with his Conehead pattern trailed with a small nymph. The fish loved it.|
|Brook Trout - The Magicians of Camouflage.|
|Nice healthy Brown|
|Healthy Little Brown|
|Underwater Net Shot :)|
|All sorts of things for the trout to hide in on this creek.|
|Little Drifting while waiting to move down stream.|
|Only a few minutes on the stream and the fish were more than cooperative.|
|I was super happy to see this fat female Brookie full of eggs. Released to do its part during the spawning season coming up.|
|Really liked the Adipose fin on this healthy Brown.|
|Jonah caught this little Bluegill in the very same hole as the Brook Trout. This is the only Bluegill I have ever seen in this stream.|
