Local stream

With an hour to kill before meeting up with my daughter, I grabbed my rod and went to a small local stream that has wild brookies and browns.  If it weren't for the highway, specifically a tunnel the stream has to flow through, this stream may well have been a candidate for sea-run brookies and browns.  Once again the parachute Adams proved to be highly effective, snookering the beautiful brookie pictured below.  The stream runs tea-colored and it is reflected in the fish's coloration.  The small brown fell for a tan Usual.  I had another good-sized fish on, but lost it while trying to position myself to bring it to hand.  Next time maybe.






24 hours later, another nice brookie and it's pool.  This one fell for a sunken dun-colored Usual as I was drawing it upstream to recast.

  1. Came across your blog via some other blogs that focus on some small streams. Great wild brookies and browns you got there. Really enjoy the posts and looking forward to seeing more. I've added you to my reading list via ariveredge.com as well.
