Last year after the big floods (southwestern wisconsin) this dam was knocked
out. The area was about 5 feet shallower. ALL the
trout were centralized in three areas. Just at the end
of view in the photo.....
Last day of season....I saw a commotion way in the
foreground of this photo...
I went up to see what I thought was a beaver dinking
around. As I got closer i was WOWED. It was giant
brown chasing down little brookies in the shallows and
eating them. I got my camera out a little to late. The
brown was minimum 28 and fat. 3/4s of its body was
outta the water when it was chasing the brookies...saw
the brookies running like minnows....too far away to
get good movie.
The water is back up to the level in the photo. It is
about a 100 yards stretch....two beaver dams make it
so it can't leave. I usually don't chase brookies
because they aren't much of a challenge...Will this
