'Frogs Fanny' And Blue Brookies...
The little streams have been holding up well. Last night we had a decent amount of rain so that will bring the levels up. It is at this time of year when water temperatures become important to the wild trout in these streams. The last week I have started to take the temps before I fish and as I move along the stream I'll check a few more times. The streams have been running quite cool, even cold in some of them. Seventy degree water is dangerous and a stream with temps like that should not be fished. For me 66 is the maximum.
This stream really shocked me...man that's cold.
Brookies are colorful fish, but sometimes I catch a few that show and extraordinary blue tint to them. I can't explain why they take on this coloration but when I find one with the blueish tint It makes me feel so good.
A gift from Oregon....got to get some "Frogs Fanny".
