Small stream scouting
A great place to enjoy a PB&J sandwich
For a couple days last week we spent some time checking on a few small streams. These streams all contain wild brookies, and this is there season to carry on. The weather has not been kind as far as rainfall, but the temps have been ideal.
This first stream flows through state land. I stopped on a dirt service road and walked slowly to the concrete bridge where the stream flows under. Upon looking into the pool I observed several brookies working the gravel. There were a lot of 3-5 inch fish there and a nice male about 7-8 inches. I stayed there motionless and observed to goings on. I attempted to take a photo and was soon discovered. Those fish headed for cover. We looked for a spell and decided to leave.
All that they need. Cold clean water, even if it's low and this miracle of nature will survive.
This is a pool located in "Jim's Brook". As you can see there is brook trout activity. There was quite a bit of pushing and shoving.
I can't wait to take the TQR out for some of this angling.
