Default Beating The Heat and Chasing High Elevation Brook Trout

With the hot weather we are having, I headed up to about 5000 feet today and decided to chase some brook trout. The air was 73 degrees at 10 am and the water was ice cold and flowing nicely.

The action was pretty decent all day. I fished a dry/dropper with most fish hitting the dropper, the old faithful #16 gray BHHE birdsnest. . Here are a few pics to share.

The brooks were pretty but the males are not in their best dressed yet, should be getting really colored up in 6 weeks or so.

It was a fun day and I caught a lot of brooks, most were smallish, but there were a few decent ones caught.
Wild troutin, blue linin, fly flingin, camo wearin, redneckin elitist.
