I did a stretch running through an old field, which was restored years back. I picked up a small brook trout from the stretch and spooks several trout. The sun was in the south and i was fishing north. With this situation i didnt stand much chance so I headed to my location. Its rather remote area but is assessable if your willing to hike. I parked the car, and headed down into the ravine. Its Rifle season here so I was taking a bit of gamble but whats life with out risks. I peered and look all around and didn't notice and stands.
I walked down the large hillside down to the spring creek. I was quite happy to see some anacris in the sandy soil of the bottom of this pools tail out. I had a good feeling there would be brook trout here after I saw those. My second drift produced a wild brook trout. I got it in and took a pic. I let it go and my next cast I got really beautiful one of good size. I walked and fished the stream for some ways. I had one a nice wild brown but the fellow didn't want his picture taken. I got into some more trout before the sun dipped behind the mountains. I headed back to the car. It was really nice to get back into those woods, that i hadn't been in for so long. I plan to hit this area some more but doing a different piece of stream. I nymphed all day as usual, my rig was a 11ft leader with 3ft of tippet. My flies where the u.v high test hares ear. Trailed by my waste midge pupa(tutorial and video coming) All the fish caught with exception to the brown, where on the u.v. high test hares ear.
|Lots of undercuts like this one makes for great trout water.|
