The big arrow points at a small trickle coming into the stream. You can not see it when the grass is high.
That trickle makes the stream considerably warmer in early season. It is a trout magnet during cold and warm conditions.
SCOUT during early season.

They need to expend too much energy to hold in place in fast water.
Andy and I had mapped the bottom the year prior in this hole. There were a couple of deep bellies in this hole that trout could lay in and stay out of the fast current.
Lots of folks tell you to stay out of the holes after you fish them. I am quite the opposite. I do recon for the next trips. I do a fast cursory check for future trips.

It is a species of salmonid very old, a native of the Mediterranean basin and which nowadays is almost extinct. It survives only in a very few rivers in central and southern Italy that can be counted on the fingers of two hands.
In Tuscany there is a group of that salmonid who works for reintroduction project in that water where it is supposed to be ages ago.
Luca fished it in a river ciprinids and it was a real surprise, the trout of my life, and what's more a macrostigma.
