For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Thursday, April 26, 2012
Sunday in the New England area we received a substantial rainfall. Most places received two and a half to three plus inches of rain.
With the rise in water levels the trout were able to move freely up and down stream. The heavy rains also washed in a considerable amount of food, plus moved plenty of in stream food. This combination brought about a selective feeding pattern.
I was able to bring a few brookies to hand by using a variety of flies from dries to wets and I had few chase a streamer. This was a welcomed rain.
The Bomber worked at times.
Every time out I see more Spring time beauty. Brook Trout Forest is starting to shape up.
This little jewel took a Picket Pin.
Now if Mother Nature can provide an inch or so of rain each week, it will be appreciated by all.
