    Thanks guys. Plan is to fish Tuesday afternoon for as much time as I have, then again Wednesday. Hopefully I'll have some colorful photos to share.

    Was surprised to catch no brookies, just small rainbows. Really small, parr marks etc

    Rained pretty steadily.

    Bummer. What section of water did you end up fishing?

    Above Alum Cave trailhead. Really only fished a couple of hours. Had to cancel Tuesday plans to help my son get moved, so I went up Wednesday morning. When the rain got bad I just packed it in and headed home. Sissy.

    The past several posts on Walker Prong sound like the stream has been taken over by rainbows. Hope the Brookies come back. I have taken a few beginners up there for their first brookies. Hope this is just temporary phase of the stream!

    Well, I did my part to reduce the rainbow population by 1 with a fresh trout lunch Seriously though, I think they are still in there. Maybe just not too many in those particular places at that particular time. Maybe not

    I caught tons of brookies in there back in late July. We actually took some very large brookies as well. The single prettiest brookie I have ever laid eyes on he was also one of the largest SABT I have ever caught came on that trip. we took some 'bows as well but in general more brookies.

    Since the water is back up to normal or near normal brookies seem to have taken to their normal holding water. Caught most brookies in larger pools and very calm water. Last summer they seemed to prefer moving water; I'd guess because of the oxygen content in the swifter water.
