This is the last day of September, the skies have opened up and gave us a much needed drink. I have not seen an actual rainfall number but from my not so sophisticated rain gauge I make it 2 inches. From radar views the state may have exceeded 3 inches. This influx of water will have an impact on the small streams and bring some movement in wild trout.
The scene above is the start of the "glorious season"...that magical time when nature paints the New England area. The colors that come forth this time of year are nothing shy of incomparable. The season refreshes both mind and soul and gives us thought to the fact that there is something greater and this is just one way of showing us.
Both the brown trout and the brook trout choose this time to start the process of renewing their species.
The colors of these fish will increase as time arrives to spawn.
Scenes like this are fully underway in Connecticut.
Autumn's colors are represented in this simple box of flies. I believe that these will serve me well for he next couple of months.
A feast for the eyes.
Thanks for sharing.
Joe that feast is only going to get better. How's it looking in your corner?
I do miss that color from Wisconsin. Those are lovely pics.ReplyDelete
May be able to get out tomorrow, we'll see.
Bill many people who transplant from north to south miss autumn. My sister was one of them.
Fish my friend.
I spent the weekend in the finger lakes. Leaves are still below peak but already some stunning colors. We got some much needed rain last night and today. Hopefully we get enough to help the streams.
Joe the change comes on fast. Finger lakes, ll salmon.
I checked a couple of streams today and they are running close to full. I think all of the northeast benefited from this rain.
Beautiful pictures, Alan. The rain last night was beautiful as well. What a welcome sound of it coming down. 2" of it in our neck of the woods.ReplyDelete
Sam it was much needed rain. I'm pretty sure I'll be fishing in Mass. this weekend. Now that we have it started, the rain that is, I hope it will continue.
The tree colors in SE Mn are turning nicely and the fish are putting on their mating suits too. Glorious time of the year.Two weeks until the end of our season.ReplyDelete
David it must be a beautiful sight. Take it all in my friend for this is natures way of preparing us for what's to come. Two weeks that's not much time, fish if you can.
We got a little rain, nowhere near enough. Glad peak color here had gone by before yesterday; hurricane winds peeled the leaves off everything. Power went out, as usual. I would gladly have traded the wind for more water.ReplyDelete
Some impressive wind for sure. Colors are changing fast and more time is needed outdoors so I don't miss any of it. I hope "bird" season is going well for you.
Alan, You finally got some water from the heavens! Those colours are just priceless, I'd love to see it unfold. All the best, JohnReplyDelete

John the rain a much needed shot in the arm. It helps but much more is needed. As for the colors they are progressing very nicely.
The Northeast is the best place in the US to experience some outstanding fall foliage!!! Beautiful trout taken on this outing, thanks for sharing
