Check out the site.

I donated some of my photos for a slideshow marquee. 



Dog Days

It is that time of year.  The weeds are insane stream side.  The water temperatures on your favorite trout stream are over 70 degrees. With the warm weather the dissolved oxygen in the water is low.  This time of the year many trout can not be revived after a prolonged battle. It is time to give the trout a break and chase warm water species.

The Times They Are A Changing

Went after trout at first light this morning.  Picked an easy spot for entry.  I landed four browns and four smallmouth in one hole.




Took the stream temperature and it was 70 degrees at 7:30 am in Richland County.

The smallies were fun to catch but I have mixed feelings about the streams warming up and smallies invading.
