Default First nice brookie of the year

I was finally able to get away for a day of fishing my favorite stretch. Rain in the morning with the sun coming out in the afternoon. This brought on a mayfly hatch. The water is still pretty high and at 48*f. This is the fish and where she was feeding. You probably guessed that she fell for a Adams size 14.

Nice catch Glass and the shot of where she came from is a good touch.

Sasha, remember, catching a brookie beats catching nothing every time around. They kinda grow on ya.

Sasha, I understand your feelings about introduced brookies in your home waters. But around here, they are our natives. I caught rainbows and browns, but they still feel exotic or even foreign to me at times. And I would be up in arms if the FW decided to stock "my streams" with them.

Yea I knew they were native out there. Donít get me wrong like any trout I think they are cool fish. Heck I have pulled some nice ones from rivers out here. The unfortunate thing is that they were pulled out of places that also hold Bull trout.

Default Re: First nice brookie of the year

I love the brook trout colors. In the fall the reds and blues look almost tropical.

In MI - the brook trout is native.

Our main native fish - the Grayling - was fished to extinction in the early 1900's. Almost impossible to imagine.
