Somehow that just seemed an appropriate title.
I'm not sure how I'm gonna work this. I can only post 8 pics per post and I've got I've 54 pics..... hmmmm. I ain't stayin' up all night. I think I'll take a zip drive to Byron and let him decide how many more, if any pics he wants.
For tonight, let's start with the Glory Hole. In the first pic, I was standing on the rock that forms the western edge of the glory hole, looking upstream toward the bridge.
For those who need a refresher, the Glory Hole is (was) a deep pool locate to the right of the second bridge going up Tremont. At the first bridge, the stream passes under the road and comes out on the right hand side. Just before it passes back under the road, it forms a large pool with a structure in the bottom. I now present, The Glory Hole 8/26/07:
I'm guessing that the Glory Hole at normal flow is probably about 6' to 7' at it's deepest center. On Sunday it might have been 4' at it's deepest. I stood on the main rock watching the fish on the bottom struggling. There may have been a 20" brown in this hole at one time, but the biggest fish I saw was about 8". Here's a view of the rock I was standing on and the "pool" from the bridge over the stream...
And a view looking upstream of the bridge...
Of course a visit to the Glory Hole wouldn't be complete without a pic of the ever-present tubers.
Back downstream at the first bridge, I snapped a few pics of rocks that may not look all that familiar at first. The first is a wide shot of the deep pool under the first bridge. The last time I fished this hole this past Spring, I had to wade around the backside of the support column on the right since that was the only spot where I had confidence of my footing. Seeing it now, I know I could walk right around either side of it.
Here's the pool under the bridge, followed by a view upstream from under the bridge.
I think that's my 8 pic limit so I'll have to pick this up in another post.
