Default Cabin Fishing

This past weekend we took a little break from the fast pace world and escaped to the cabin. I got out everyday that we were there. This little stream is fun to fish. It has browns and rainbows in it. Here are a few pictures of the area.

Beautiful! I'm jealous.

I am just starting to get into fly fishing and I am having a hard time finding fish in small stone creeks like that. Where do you focus when you're fishing in small stony streams like that? Do you focus on the pools or on the seams. it seems to me that most of the water is too rough for them to see anything in but I know I have to be wrong on that

I see fish being all over in a river like that. I bet it's not a lack of fish but maybe a presentation or pattern choice/size. Be stealthy around skinny, clear water and fish the pockets and seams.

I am use to fishing on large rivers. I live 3 minutes from the American River in Sacramento. 100' wide and DEEP. Finding fish there is easy by fishing the seams with the right water speed. Fishing these small streams just baffles me.

I guess I'll have to find one and just give it a try.

Looks like a typical river here in Utah, except for the Green of course. I'd probably be lost in your neck of the woods.

Great pictures, made me feel like I was right there. Yup, it's tough living out west, but somebody has to do it

I am very blessed to have this water so close. I can't wait to take my son and watch him catch fish on this little stream. My grandpa bought the cabin about ten years ago, and it took about 4 to make it livable. The lady that owned it was a horder. So it was a family affair. I am blessed to have it to share with generations to come.
