Fished some non-designated water in Richland County tonight

Image
This stretch will be unfishable in three weeks due to vegetation growth.
Image
All trout were directly behind cover.
Image
Outside temp was 66. Water temp 58.
Partly cloudy. Water clarity slightly cloudy.

That type of water spinners work much better.

Fished some tiny water with my best fishing buddy Andy.
Andy caught two big trout of the day.
I caught a couple more than him but nothing photo worthy.
Andy was fishing lots of different droppers...
Wind was terrible.
It was better than sitting at home.

Can you ALL visualize a brookie with these colors but about 8 inches longer?
My buddy Andy was dragging a big flashy olive bugger and he exclaimed:

"Oh my god look at that monster."
I was standing right along side Andy and watched the whole thing go down.

This one beat the monster to the bugger.

Image

This one was caught in same hole as the Oh My God brookie.

Browns And Lots Of Them.

fished for 3 hours this afternoon. 3pm until 6pm.
Image
These yellow flowers were in the swampy first part of my fish. I walked up to the flowers to take a photo and the next thing you knew i was waist deep in mud. Was a little scary for a while.

I caught a ridiculous amount of browns. They ranged from 4 inches to 18.

I actually stopped fishing early and walked out because I thought catching anymore would be GREEDY.

Had about another 10 on that I lost due to going barbless today.
They were all behind structure or in funnels along banks with cuts.
Image
A return trip to this water is in order before the weeds get to tall and make it impossible to fish there.
Image

Image
Non-designated water.
Clarity very good.
Outside temps 58
water temp 56
Sunny
No obvious hatches.

The sun was bright and high in the sky. We both landed about
10 each.

Bruce Ristow and I went out today for 2 hours. Bruce showed me some water on a stream
I already fished. Upstream a ways. I had fished the area 3 years ago and dismissed the
area as too shallow and narrow for good fishing.

The last two floods had carved out some nice holes and the beavers also helped our cause.
Image
The blue bells are in full bloom. The below flower is unknown to me but beautiful.
Image
It was Bruce's area so it was appropriate that Bruce caught the 2 biggest trout.
Image
I lost a brown almost this long just before Bruce landed this one.
Image
We saw 5 brook trout over 14 inches and were stunned to see a pair around 17 inches follow one of Bruce's retrieves.
Image
Bruce's big brookie of the outing wouldn't hold still long enough for a good close up.

We both landed over 25 trout each in 2 hours.

That is awesome Len.

Makes me want to start fishing streams again. I fished rainbows on spring breaks down in Missouri, had a blast.
