Re: If you were designing a Trout stream what would it be like?
My favorite stream I've ever fished had deep plunges and pools, roughly 10-15ft wide for the most part, but it opened up at one point that we backpacked into. It was probably 30 feet wide, with good sized boulders sticking out of 2-3ft of gravel bed spaced out about 10 feet apart. You could cast a #18-16 dry behind the boulders and get a bite before your fly floated out of the pocket. It even had a nice grassy bank and we were camped literally 15 feet from the creek. It was in the Beartooth mountains in Montana and was surrounded by wildlife.
