Default Went fishin again TR

I got off to a late start this morning and did not leave the house until about 930 am. I figured I would be on the stream by 12 pm and that would be enough time to fish the section I had in mind.

I have not fished this stream since this time last year. It's an awesome brown trout stream, but it's lower elevation. I don't go there in the summer due to all the snakes. I try to stay above 3500 feet all summer long.

I arrived at the stream and the parking lot at the trail head was full. I figured they were mostly hikers, so I geared up and headed to the trail and I soon saw two guys fishing. They told me where they started and I figured that was no problem, I was planning to hike about a mile below their starting point any way. Then they told me another group was down on that end. I went back to the truck and headed to one of my favorite streams a little over an hour away. That's the way it goes some times.

Finally, I arrived at the other stream. I saw no signs of any other fisherman, so I headed on down to one of my favorite sections.

Within 5 minutes, I captured these little fellows.

I fished on, enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery.

I set the hook so hard on this stick, I almost fell into the stream.

Wham bam, five in a row on the dry. These were the only fish caught on the dry today.

After two short hours of fishing, I finished the stretch. I debated to head to a nearby brook trout stream but I knew if they were hitting, I would have a hard time leaving. It was already almost 5 pm and I did not want to be up the side of that mountain in the dark. There is no trail in or out, so I decided to call it quits for the day.

I had some recon and scouting I had been wanting to do. There were a few spots I have been looking at on the maps, so I headed up the mountain to check on that. I was trying to find an easier access point to a particular brook trout stream. It looked good on the map, but when I checked it out, there is no way that would work.

So I headed home, I took my time and stopped a few times to look at the mountains. It's so beautiful up there, I hate to come home.

I had fun, even if I only got to fish for two hours. I will have to try and hit that brown stream again, maybe get there a little earlier next time.
