Default Stockers were doing good.

We're staying on the spur this weekend and I fished yesterday before the front rolled in. They must be releasing some larger fish in perpetration for the delayed harvest season because I caught a dozen bows, nicer than usual, all in a pretty short stretch. I then went up into the north end of town and caught a few smaller fish more like I'm used to seeing.
I wanted to go up a little higher but with weather and time not permitting I didn't make it. Today just turned off a little chilly for my taste as far as fishing so my little dog and I have been by the fire relaxing. Heading back to Virginia in the morning and get to dream all winter about getting back up in the mountains in the Spring. It's time to run my bird dog and do a little Quail hunting when the highs get down around the mid 30's.
p.s. I took a couple of pics but can't upload until I get home. I figured you guys wouldn't care about a pic of a stocker anyhow. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!!

Smile Sorry - Thanks for the report

Maybe I'll chase a few stockers too.

And didn't you know that you can't get responses without pictures

You better download those pics to keep the natives at bay

I should have known that Ducky. It's just too much trouble on an iPad to post pics. And I figured no one wanted to see a pic of a stocker anyhow.
Personally I had fun, not much competition or exercise to fishing for them but I figured the temps were too low up higher and we only had one car. The girls wanted to shop so I just walked down the river on the spur from where we were staying and mopped up, win win for me, catch fish and get out of those crowds!
