A few weeks ago, a good soaking rain filled and cooled the streams around here. Naturally, that also meant that nearly all of these streams were the color of coffee & cream. Luckily, at least one of my favorite little wild trout streams was fishable, and I ended up having a great day for July. It was good to put a bend in the 1wt again, and to bring a few fish up top after weeks of swinging & stripping streamers for smallies. Here's a few pictures, to prove the story:
This is what most of the streams looked like.
Until I found a little slice of paradise.
Check out those fins!
Holdover from the spring stockings, methinks...
