The lowland streams remain too warm to fish for trout. So, back to the mountains in the hope that they stay fishable for a while.
The last time I was here, last Fall, I had a long rod with me. This time I brought a 6' 1 wt. to help negotiate the trees and bushes.
The water temperature was still good. The levels are a little low, but that's just going to have to wait for some rain.
I like this coloring on brook trout. There were a few like this here.
Fished the first spot for a while, then moved on to a slightly larger and slightly warmer spot.
With a different mixture of fish.
Altogether for the day caught wild and stocked brook trout, wild and stocked rainbows, and stocked browns. No salmon, though I've caught them here before.
Next weekend is the long 4th of July weekend. Might be a good weekend to stay out of the traffic.
