Default Third small stream report of the day

I believe from another part of the state as Wes and splatek. I had been to this place before and only caught the smallest of the strikes I got, so I went searching for the larger risers from my previous outing. It took me a while to find fish willing to play the game, but the first I caught was the prettiest rainbow I've ever seen.



I caught many more, but they all seemed to be in deep holes which were a bit far apart to call every plunge pool. There was one run against an undercut bank that produced a "one that got away" fish that came unbuttoned, but for the most part I was catching good fish.


I went up above some waterfalls and found a promising hole. Splashy rise and I had a fish on that made a run under some rhododendrum and I couldn't stop him because he was doing it against rod bend!! Good thing my hook set was solid and I was able to get my line free and bring him in. Picture doesn't do it justice, but this was my biggest wild trout yet.


I went searching for brookies after that, but despite a few miles of walking I only caught more rainbows at my next spot and the area was becoming too rhododendrum choked to crawl, much less fish.

Wow, that first fish is, indeed, beautiful. And I like the last - looks like a nice tug!
