Fished a tiny stream this morning way off the roadway. Fished from 8:30am until 11:30am. The weather conditions were sunny with gin clear water. The water temp was 44 degrees. The outdoor temp was 52 degrees.

When I got off the road a ways....
This is what I saw first.

Fished today on Non-designated trout water in Richland County today with my daughter Anna. We started at 1:30pm and it was hard sledding until it clouded up. We lost a few at shore and half way through the outing we changed our tactics and it was amazing the results we had. I landed 8 trout in 3 hours and Anna landed 18. Anna's biggest to hand is below.

Fished some tiny water with my best fishing buddy Andy.
Andy caught two big trout of the day.
I caught a couple more than him but nothing photo worthy.
Andy was fishing lots of different droppers...
Wind was terrible.
It was better than sitting at home.

Can you ALL visualize a brookie with these colors but about 8 inches longer?
My buddy Andy was dragging a big flashy olive bugger and he exclaimed:

"Oh my god look at that monster."
I was standing right along side Andy and watched the whole thing go down.

This one beat the monster to the bugger.

This one was caught in same hole as the Oh My God brookie.

Default Browns And Lots Of Them.

Click the image to open in full size.
fished for 3 hours this afternoon. 3pm until 6pm.
Click the image to open in full size.
These yellow flowers were in the swampy first part of my fish. I walked up to the flowers to take a photo and the next thing you knew i was waist deep in mud. Was a little scary for a while.

I caught a ridiculous amount of browns. They ranged from 4 inches to 18.

I actually stopped fishing early and walked out because I thought catching anymore would be GREEDY.

Had about another 10 on that I lost due to going barbless today.
They were all behind structure or in funnels along banks with cuts.

A return trip to this water is in order before the weeds get to tall and make it impossible to fish there.
