For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Monday, November 18, 2013
A thought entered my mind last week to perhaps pay a visit to one of the "salter" brook trout streams on Cape Cod. So early Sunday morning we left to do just that. The weather was not promising, with the possibility of showers. While driving we encountered fog, drizzle and the peak of a brightening sky. Upon arriving in Buzzards Bay we stopped at Leo's, the place for a super breakfast. If your ever in the area please stop there you won't be sorry. As we were leaving Leo's the sun was about to break out, and when we arrived at the stream there it was out in force.
Walking up the road the smell of wet pine and damp earth mixed with salt air was incredible.
This is a coastal stream and is influenced by tidal movements. The lower portion was showing an out going tide. I have never fished here at this time of year so I knew not what to expect. The one certainty was these brook trout have a strong love affair for streamers.
When placed in the right place the streamer will be taken. Yellow and red seem to be favored colors.
One never knows what to expect here
Tidewater. This is salty water.
May have been in the salt for a while
An incredible coastal fishery
Later in the afternoon the clouds took over and a fine rain started. As we said so long to this beautiful place the sky opened up. Thankful for the wonderful day we took the ride home.
