Today the Connecticut trout season closes for a few weeks, and most of the small streams will be off line for about six weeks. Trout fishing will be available at the Class 1 wild trout streams as well as the TMA's.
Sunday was the final outing on a small brook trout stream for Kirk and I. The stream was in top form as was the weather. With such conditions at the end of February the thought was "who needs to catch fish on such a beautiful day" and that held for sometime. To say the trout were not playing along would be understating a bit. It was slow and the first bump took sometime. The brookie that did that was about the size of the fly I was using
Fortunately that did not remain the case. And soon I was able to get a fish to chase a mini-bugger, and not once but twice before he withdrew to the confines of some pretty big rocks.
The third chase of said mini-bugger was the charm. A fine friend was at hand. Impressive tail......
Kirk trying to get a fish on the line. A beautiful bright day which makes for poor camo.
Later in the morning the brookies were looking up and I managed to take a few on "Bombers".
Signs of Spring were about.
This has got to be the most beautiful brook trout of the year. A true "wild jewel".......thanks.
