Remarkable fish

The brook trout is truly a beautiful and remarkable fish.  The fact that it survives under conditions that are far from ideal is a testament to its tenacity.  I have the utmost admiration for this fine creature.  While trying to scope out a brook that I was told harbored wild fish, I crossed the one pictured below and couldn't help but briefly explore it.  In spite of the incredibly low flow rate, the water was cool so I took a few casts.  I missed a fish in the first pool, spooked one in the second and finally caught one in the third and last pool that I visited.  With more water this brook may prove to be a nice stop this fall.

  1. Yes they are remarkable. Visited many streams this week and observed some fine fish. A wet Sept will help a lot.
