I have found a few new streams over the winter that I will give a great deal of attention to. Some preliminary research has shown that these streams hold wild brown trout. But the proof will come in a couple of months from now when I actually start throwing flies into them. I'm going to try to fish more for browns this year, something that I have wanted to do for some time.
Small stream wild brown trout. I am focused and hopefully you'll see more of these in future posts.
Good Luck - wild browns are all too special - and all so wary...And when they live in gorgeous places like this, 'tis a day of stalking and wondering...Your "sense of wonder" really is to be admired. Your days in the woods are so enjoyable to witness...ReplyDelete
I have always said the wild brown is a fish that when you catch it you can really give yourself a pat on the back.
They are a formidable opponent.
Hope to get a few fly caught browns this spring, if not on bait come our river coarse fishing season opening in June. Letys hope they arew as pretty as thoseReplyDelete
I hope you do take those browns on the fly.
Those plunge pools look so inviting, I can picture in my minds eye flicking a small dry fly or soft hackle into their waters and watching as a small Brownie snatches it at lightning speed!
Good luck in your quest for more of those beautiful trout.
Take care and stay safe
Alistair most times those plunges hold some beautiful fish. Your fly selection would do the trick.
My goal this spring is to check out new water. I have 15 streams on a to do list. My "Voelker's Pond" arrived. Thanks for the tip.ReplyDelete
David with 15 streams on the list your going to be busy.
Your going to love Voelkers.
Browns, and Rainbows, are like story book characters; they don't exist here, but it's fun to read about them. Love the picture of the rod in the snow, makes me feel normal.ReplyDelete
Mike the brown has a long history in the US. He was brought here and at least from my view he has lived up to the name "naturalized"...rainbows well that another issue.
Snow covered reels, I love to make folks feel at home. Upper 60's today.
Alan I'm sure you remember a particular coastal stream we fished a couple years ago where we got both brookies and browns... I returned today to try to get one of those gorgeous dark, sparsely spotted fish. I did get brookies but came up short on trutta. A lovely day!ReplyDelete
Rowan I often think about the stream. Parts of it are spectacular and should produce some awesome fish. Last year I poke around it much further up and found some great looking water. An issue was there was a lot of houses close. I did not fish it.
Looking forward to your adventures in those small, wild waters. Surely the browns are waiting.ReplyDelete
Mike searching and finding that new stream keeps us going. Once or twice they prove to be real gems.
Completely excited for you today - tight lines!ReplyDelete
Kevin tight lines are always welcomed. You'll be interested when you see what tightened my line...next post.
Alan, Beautiful browns! Definitely signs of Spring. :)ReplyDelete
Ralph we had a nice taste of spring last week. More to come buddy.
