    Default Spring fishin: PEI Streams and Rivers

    Got out for a little fish this morning on one of the many small stream rivers in PEI that empty into the ocean. Many are saying water is too cold still, theruns haven't come in yet. Still some smelts in though. Wont be long now before the schools are in.

    Finally remembered to take the iphone along so I can post some pics of the water and terrain this time of year. Notice I was in the tidal zone, the tide is out a bit.

    Nice thing, walking along the bank in spring, is all the cat tails are tiny little spikes barely breaking through the ground. Instead of 9 feet tall and a royal pain in the butt

    Caught only one brookie; at least no skunkers

    Hope you enjoy

    Nice pool up stream (above tidal zone)



    More down stream where tide influences water depth (notice the void under the bank)


    Heading more down stream










    Of course some gear pics





    Cheers

    I would prolly say beaches, potato farms and trout fly fishing. Boy the waters would have been ripe with salmon and trout 40 years ago.
    Good sea food too.

    Phil: Great photos of an awesome looking stream! I love your handmade net along side the old gear bag, just a perfect setting for a photo!

    They sure were full of trout 50 + years ago - both sea run Brookies and "Austrian" Brown Trout in some of the lakes. Don't know about the Salmon. I caught my first brown in a small lake there someplace.

    Hey there, I just joined the forum and noticed the PEI posting. Quick question if I may,

    What river did you take your pictures on?
    How do you like the Allan Reel? Did they ship to PEI?

    tks

    Welcome to the forum; I like your avatar! What species fish do you have on in the pic?

    Thanks,

    The elusive avatar "trout", supplied by the forum folks

    I just picked one of sample avatars when I registered. Will replace with the real deal once I get a decent pic.

    Haha; thought of that after I posted; looks like it could pass for PEI though
