Lots of flowers in bloom.
The stream was in super shape. A few brook trout were taken in the pools on dry flies.
I came upon this pool and inviting it looked. On the first cast a trout rose and missed. Several casts later and up he came, this time he was hooked.
As the fish swirled near my feet his amazing colors were seen. As I lifted the jewel I was in awe of him. The colors were so pronounced. A strong male with that slight hook in the jaw. A brook trout for October indeed.
They look like snow flakes.
Upstream, I will try these rugged pools when I'm alone the next visit.
