Half a Day of Work

Was planning on getting out Saturday, but the weather will be crappy (35 Degrees, 15 mph winds, and 705 chance of rain).  Saw though that it was going to be 56 degrees today so I told my boss I'll be working half a day today.  It was a good call, fished today in a t shirt and caught about 30 to 40 fish in three hours.  Granted they were all in the 4 to 6 inch range, but still beats working a full day.  The stream I fished usually holds quite a few in the 8  to 10 inch range and a few I've seen bigger, but they made no appearances today.  Didn't matter though, still enjoy catching the little guys.  Hope catching 5 inch wild brookies never get old and boring to me.

It's a rough little stream.

I liked the colors on this little guy.

I hate this pool.  It skunks me just about every time, yet it's one of the nicest pools on the stream.  Baffles me!

Picture perfect day!

Thanks for reading.

Wishing for Spring.

Haven't been out in about three weeks so I gave Doug a call.  Wanted to find some streams close by to fish when I'm at the inlaws house.  Doug had a couple in mind that he hadn't had a chance to fish yet so I said lets go.  It was the warmest 20 degree fishing day I've ever had.  Actually had to shed a layer because I started to sweat.  First stream was promising and I think will fish great in the spring.  I moved one brookie that was big and caught another shortly after.  Due to the tough access, I think this stream holds big fish but they just holding deep and were lock jawed.  The rest of the afternoon we just drove around and checked out a few streams.  One we were going to fish until we saw how blown out it was.  Overall it was a good outing even with the lack of fish.
