Trip Report "Gary Peters"

Gary and I hit the water at 1:30pm.  43 degrees and overcast.  The water was a little high and clarity was good.

We landed 18 between the 2 of us.

Trip Report Times Two

Hit the water at 7am with Sam Delventhal.  Was overcast and water was slightly stained.  We fished until 11:30am.  We caught less than a dozen between the two of us.  Sam hooked a really nice hook jawed male at shore in the 20 range but it got off before we could net it..

The weeds were knocked down in some places so it wasn't such a pain to fish.

Sam had to go home to eat and nap because he works a 7pm to 7am shift tonight.

The end of season is screaming up on me and I was disappointed in my morning outing so I fished a couple hours this afternoon.  I landed 22 browns in one of favorite streams.

Noon to 2pm was a little more like I am use to.

Monster Quest In The Morning

The last time I was out scouting I noticed flooding knocked down the weeds stream side.  I had been avoiding a stretch because the weeds were up to my chin.  My buddy Sam Delventhal and I are hitting the long stretch at first light.

Couple monster from stretch earlier this year.

This is the last time I fished the stretch. Photo from middle May.

I am certain the stretch has had little to no pressure since late May.....fingers are crossed.

The colors in the trout were amazing.

Indelible 2019

The definition of indelible is something that cannot be erased or eliminated.

It was the first warm day of March. My most indelible memory of 2019 has to be when Chris Young had a hook up on big fish.  I hurried to the water's edge to get in a good netting position when the big brown "tried to touch the sky" directly in front of me about 10 feet off shore and 3-4 feet out of the water.

It arched its body and shook its head in what it seemed almost in slow motion and I watched the spinner fly out of its mouth and nearly hit me in the face as it was ejected. The trout won this time.

We both just stood there in awe and disappointment.
