Decided to hit a new stream this past weekend that has been on my radar for a while, but access is tough. Access from bottom is obsolete and you have to access this stream from the top at 3,600 ft elevation. There was a 2,000 ft elevation loss to get onto this stream and round trip total of 6 miles was hiked, all for a stream that I wasn't even sure had trout on it.
|Old hunting shack or logging compound.|
|Guessing this is how the loggers gathered some water up at the top.|
|There is nothing better than fishing a new stream you are not sure holds trout and landing a brookie.|
|Good size trout for this size stream.|
It was a successful outing, but I need to reevaluate access points on this stream. My legs hurt for days after this trip. There is 600 ft of elevation gain in a couple hundred yard stretch that about killed me.
