As we move into August
Small stream pocket water
We just turned the calendar to the month of August. We have now entered the last full month of summer, and I might add it's been a good summer. In the rain gauge most areas have had adequate rain and the water temps in the streams I've fished have not exceeded 65 degrees with most being near 60. Going into August I've noticed the little changes taking place in our woodlands. The late summer flower blooms, the oaks dropping lots of acorns and the arrival of "Joe Pye". What is strange is that I have not seen any whitetail fawns, lots of does and velvet antlered bucks but no spotted fawns. Well if we can have July's weather continue in August then we will be doing just fine.
I did fish on the first of August and found willing brookies in the tails of riffles.
A reason to love summer, native zucchini. I like it breaded and fried. Folks please don't use those ready seasoned bread crumbs. Buy plain and season them yourself.
