I then tried a creek that I've never fished before, and was hoping for better fishing. Right off the bat, I caught a nice brookie.
For some reason, after that fish, it was all cockroaches again.
On the way out, I noticed a ruckus in the woods. After hearing a bugle, I was shocked to see another whole group of elk.
I was a little close to that bull and he came trotting my way briefly before stopping to chase another cow. Those things are massive. I thought I would have to do some jousting with my fly rod, and luckily I didn't have to change my waders.
After a long 3 days, we called it quits and decided to go ahead and head back. Although the fishing was slower than I was accustomed to, it was still a heck of a long weekend. I can see lots more camping up there in my future, assuming it opens back up.
