I’ve been out of the fishing scene for a while now. Hunting season has a way of taking all of your free time. So this past weekend, I decided to head up to a local brook trout stream to see how thing are after a summer of sever flooding. Talk about a different river!! I fished all the normal areas, but the holes and pockets that usually hold fish have been rearranged. It’s sorta like fishing a new stream that you’ve known all along. Kinda weird really!
Fishing was pretty good for mid-January. I have historically not done well here this early in the year, but the warm weather we have had recently must have made a few fish get hungry! As usual this time of year, most fish were caught on a large nymph. I guess they are tying to get as much food as possible. So big meals it is!
Here are a few scenes from the trip.
I hope this is not a sign of things to come for this year!! I’ve had a really long run of REALLY good luck in the equipment department! It’s been quite some time since I have broken a rod..
That streak was ended this trip.
