A Small Stream, 11-7-14

Yesterday I had a commitment to see through but at the last minute it was cancelled. Now I had some free time and a beautiful day, even though it was on the windy side and somewhat cool, I still had a few hours to visit a small stream.

The water level was somewhat on the low side, but still sufficient to keep the resident brook trout population happy. The char were in the business of creating future populations and signs of this were evident all along the stream. The little fellows were actively rising to dry flies with some of the bigger guys just not interested.


Just to be able to walk along such a place on a fine November day is reward enough to satisfy this angler.

To be able to bring a brook trout to the surface and have the opportunity to photograph him is a plus.



I look forward to fishing this stream many more times over the coming months, and I hope to enjoy such a day as this.

      Thanks.
      They were on that bomber big time. It was cool, but it will get cooler and the brook trout will cooperate.
