Well, I suppose I was inspired from Friday, so I went fishing again today. I had hoped there would be rain to give the water some color, but it was pretty dry today. I went to a small appalachian stream that has both wild and stocked fish. It's a relatively small stream.
I caught about 30 with most in the 8-12 inch range. All but five of them were rainbows, about 10 stocked and the rest wild. There were fish almost everywhere there should be, but a couple pools had obviously been hammered. In them I didn't get a strike. The nice thing about this stream is that the trout strike so slowly, that they make me think I haven't lost anything on my reflexes. Best I could tell, I only missed four today. I caught all of the trout on a nymph except for one on a dry.
By far, this was the fish of the day…
This wild brown (another in the 17 inch range) had no visible red spots that I could tell. It was a good day to fish.
