Another grand day in Brook Trout Forest. Be it the weather was not the best, at least the rain was pretty much held in check, and with cooler air temps those pesky little flying critters were at bay. As I approached the stream and gazed about I could see the greenery was progressing nicely. There were fiddleheads sprouting, and for some that's "yummy". On a sad note the trillium seems to be dying off but a few bright flowers were there.
What's Spring in "Brook Trout Forest" without trillium.
I took some video of brook trout rising to my dry fly in this pool. There must have been 3-4 guys whacking the fly. I managed to poke a few and even one to hand.
A colorful little guy. The brook trout are in various colors now. Typical for this time of year.
Stream flowing at almost peak condition.
Another color, almost pale. The one thing that was noticed today was the feel of the water, it was darn cold to touch. I placed a thermometer in the stream and was surprised how cold it was.
Wonderful times again, brook trout ,cold water, dry flies...simplicity at its best.
