Pre Tax Season Shenandoah National Park

Decided to make the most of the nice weather this past weekend to fish in the Shenandoah National Park.  Needed a little bit of SNP before new job tax season duties keep me indoors for the rest of winter/early spring.  SNP is a place where I have always said I do not fish enough, but have already hit it twice in the past couple months.  The water levels were perfection and the trout were very active from the get go.  A few big girls made their appearance with one going for close to the foot mark and several in the 9 to 11 inch range as well.  Couldn't ask for a better day.

About the average size fish for the day.

Big girl of the trip.  Will be a tough brookie to top this year.

With a side of coffee and watching my friend work a pool.

Some big mayfly nymphs were under every rock, explains the nice average size trout.

Homeward bound.
