With only a limited amount of time available to me for fishing, I headed to two local streams to see if I could entice some of the residents. The first stream is stocked (and is supposed to have sea-run browns). Previously I had caught a couple dozen browns, all about the same size and color, with next to no effort. Today I caught five browns, but now they looked a lot nicer, with much better color. As usual the sparrow nymph was effective at getting their attention. As you can guess, no sea-run brown for me. The second stream has both wild browns and brookies, but today it failed to prove it to me. Maybe next time.
