Bring on the rain!

Went out Sunday to a little rainbow stream.  Found out that the rain has been missing that whole entire drainage.  Water was very very low and really not fishable.  Spent an hour just hiking along the stream (dry stream bed) and spotted a couple trout.  Most pools were less then a foot deep and pitiful. Here is a picture of the stream.

Usually all the rocks are almost completely covered.  Instead of harassing the trout I just hiked up and observed.  I knew there would be one pool that would still be holding water and be fishable.  The area the stream is in is actually crawling with campers and hikers, but this branch of the trib sees very little traffic due to no trails along this section and a steep descent.  The pool I was hiking too would quickly become another local swimming hole if it wasn't for the tough to reach spot its in.

And this pool made it worth while.

I'm just happy to catch a trout.

Now I'm off to do a little rain dance....
