I received an e-mail from a gentleman who lives in Ohio. He's a follower of my blog and finds the streams I fish as well as the fish themselves to be some of the most beautiful he has ever seen. In Ohio so much of the fishing is warm-water and to see our streams is such a pleasure. His question was do the streams dry up, and how do the wild trout fare through the seasons. My reply to him was this. The trout survive because the streams they live in do hold up well enough to sustain them. The waters flow through deep shaded valleys. The also have springs that seep up through the stream bottom providing cool water. Most of the streams also have some pretty deep plunge pools which provide oxygenated water as well as cover from natural predators. Below is a series of photos of the same stream through the seasons, that is Autumn, Winter and Spring.
