A little luck before the downpour
Traveling around looking for river herring for the DEEP has, not surprisingly, enabled me to observe other fish that inhabit the streams to which these anadromous species return for spawning. On occasion I see one of our favorite little denizens (trout) and make a mental note to return there some day and see if any are willing to be caught and photographed. I finally went to one of those streams and was able to catch and release two sizable brookies using BRK TRT's red Picket Pin. Although they are probably stocked fish, at least they cooperated and provided some excitement just before the late afternoon downpour. This stream is smack dab in the middle of a beautiful CT River town and clearly has a few fish in it.
