Thanks to a tip from a reader of this blog, I found some open water at a small stream that holds wild brookies and browns. I had only a few hours and followed the sound of running water to find it. A stunning place.
I’m new to this stream and was struck by its beauty.
Riffles, small runs, and plunge pools abounded. And, even good lengths of bubble lines.
Upstream, it was even better. There were fallen trees and deep bends.
While there were no bumps, strikes, or hookups, I know I will be back when the weather is warmer. And, I’ve got to work on being stealthy on such shallow and clear waters.
I was grateful to be outside and on some water after such a cold February. So, the hunt for wild trout continues.
