Good morning and happy first day of June. The last day has seen a much needed rainfall here in Connecticut which will improve fishing conditions on our small streams.
I went fishing on Friday and while driving to the stream I encountered a doe standing out in a field, not so unusual, but she never took alert as to my presence. I got out of my car and walked to the fence line to try and get a photo and she still did not spook. She was wandering and looking to the tree line at the border of the field. My thoughts were there was a coyote close by and she was searching for him, but why wouldn't she just run off. After several minutes of this she began to head to the edge of the field stopping just short of the edge. Then that's when I saw the little spotted fellow lying in the grass. Just barely visible before mom shaded him. A second later and they were gone into the deep grass and eventually into the woods.
On to the fishing. The day was one of those sort of funky weather days, the kind that features sticky warm temps, the mornings that seem to bring out the biting insects, all looking to eat. I put up with it and still managed to have a fine day.
With a deep leaf canopy the stream was nicely shaded. The waters cool, and a rising fish could be seen from time to time.
Such places as these usually hold a fish or two.
And a Bomber will usually bring them to the surface.
The last fish of the day....a handsome wild brown.
