Default Fall colors on small streams

In the last few weeks I've made three different trips to photograph the fall colors on two of my favorite small trout streams and one new one. The catching ranged from bad to worse, but the fishing was outstanding. I never really managed to find a spot where all the reds and yellows were synchronized -- there always seemed to be some still green and some already brown -- but I think some of the pictures came out alright anyway.

They're better appreciated in larger sizes, but here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!

A nice brook trout lives here, miles from anywhere (the ultimate somewhere):

The next three are from a pretty remote piece of water in a generally populated area, where there are rumored to be trout, but I only caught one small brown. There are nice pools, though:

The two below are from a popular state park where it's sometimes hard to get the hikers out of the picture. Both pools hold lots of trout; the top one gets a lot of pressure and the fish are tough to catch. Tricky cross-currents are partially to blame. The bottom pool is easier to get to, but everybody overlooks it, and the fish come easily.

By the way, these are available as desktop backgrounds too.
