    Looks like you need rain up there, I hear things are warm. I love those little forgotten runs like that.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Yes it is hot and dry. We haven't had any real amount of rain in three weeks.

    Fished one of my favorite streams the other day.





    In years past, this stream has held tons of Brookies in the 6-9" range. This year, there weren't quite as many fish (you'd catch one per hole instead of 2-4), but there were a little bigger, averaging 8-11."



    On the way out, I fished this even littler tributary of the first little stream:





    There used to be Cutthroat in the upper section, but unfortunately I haven't caught one up there the last two years. A little farther downstream, they are still holding in. I saw a fish rising regularly up against the bank just in front of the overhanging brush (under the grassy section).



    I kept watching him rise, but couldn't see anything on the water that he was taking. I thought it was probably ants, but there were also a few small dark mayflies in the air. So I tied on a size 16 generic dry fly (a black thread body and a grizzly hackle is all it is) and put it right in front of him. Bingo!





    That is the best fish I've taken out of this stream. I've seen one that was probably a little bigger, but that's the biggest one I've actually caught.

    Great pictures all! I can't wait to get back to WNY and start searching for my own small streams!

    Poke Em,

    You have it too good there

    Here is what qualifies as a pretty small creek around these parts and a look at what you may hook there when fishing for char or trout.

    I know it sounds lame but before the salmon get into them the fishing is better.
