Default Outing Yesterday

Fished plum creek yesterday.

Zero Brook trout 23 browns.

This very unusual because was a GREAT brook trout fishery .

I sent an email to the fish manager from the area about my concerns.

................................

Len,



Thanks for the update. Our survey last year showed the same thing. While gill lice may be the issue, unfortunately there is little we can do about them. I am in hope that brook tout will regain control of this system, however, as you know this is probably unlikely.



Regards,



Jordan

Len: Do you think the issue is gill lice or the fact that the browns have taken hold and run the brookies out of there, or maybe a combination of the two.

not sure if gill lice alone...
typically browns don't like as cold of water as brooks.
Maybe the stream temperatures raised also.

Brookies move in streams. quite a bit to find suitable temps for them. In a lot of streams here in the U.P. they move from different parts during the seasons. In the spring I usually find them in deep swift moving water near the surface picking off freeing nymphs etc. I'm not sure if this is the case where you are of course but, just my 2 cents on the matter.
