I tried fishing at a tiny creek for brookies, about 2 feet wide and maybe 2 feet deep in some areas, and there's a lot of tall grass around it. I only had 1 look, but no bites. The problems I was having was the fish were really spooky when I would approach, I could only approach from the side areas because of DNR workers in the creek, and when I did get a good approach, they'd see my fly line and get out of there. Are brook trout usually that spooky? Should I make upstream casts with a longer tippet? Any help is helpful.
this is a little tough,
but I'm determined
