This summer has been difficult for us who find our pleasure in fishing small streams.
The rainfall has been very limited and some of the streams have almost dried up. I have a few that I don't often fish, having several streams that are closer to home, which I fish. Over the long weekend I searched out a few and was able to find them with decent water.
This stream is an absolute joy to fish when the water is flowing a bit stronger, but under low conditions its somewhat of a different story. Finding areas where a trout will be holding is one thing, getting them to hand is another. The trout would dart out and rise to the fly and you have one shot to hook him, or walk on. Once the pool is disturbed, move to another and fish, or sit down and enjoy the views of the country.
So on a day such as this I was very grateful for what this stream gave me.
