For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Mini-streaming...fishing those small creeks and tiny flows that we see and then ask are there trout in there. Well maybe they just might be. This is one such mini stream I fished for awhile this week. It feeds a a small stream and has a decent flow all year. I've poked around it at times through out the year and have spooked brookies. This day I found many pools that were quite full with water from the ample rains we have fortunate to experience. This is what just might bring up a larger brookie from the main stream. So armed with some bombers I set off to see what I could find.
Dark pools such as these are usually good places to drift the bomber. Anybody home?
No there wasn't...but there was someone home in the plunge pool just above the dark spot.
Trillium. This beautiful flower lined the banks of the stream. It blooms for just a short while in the spring.
You have heard of a "Venus Fly Trap" well look at that jumble of wood and roots...a bomber fly trap.
It's places like such that hold these wild jewels. Mini-streaming is a great change of pace. I don't do it all the time but when I do I always ask myself why not.
