I call it my brookie stream since it is the stream that means the most to me here in Virginia. It gets very little fishing pressure due to the difficulty to reach the stream and it is the stream where I caught my first wild brook trout and ultimately feel in love with bluelining. I went out this morning with a guy I met and had a much needed day of wild brookies. The water levels were just perfect from all the rain that hurricane Irene gave us and the good water levels also made the trout really active. I brought 6 to hand and had countless hits and LDR's. The guy I fished with caught 8. We were only on the water for a couple hours, so we had good numbers for the time spent.
This brookie was the biggest I caught today and is a really good trout for this creek. He was around 8 inches and really smashed my stimulater. The brookies in this stream are really strong and meaty trout. It's refreshing to see a stream do so well and the brook trout really thrive. So enough of the talking, here are some pictures of the trout I caught, the stream, and some underwater shots.
