The first creek was so clear that it was very easy to spook the fish, which ended up making fishing a bit slow. The snow was melting quickly and making the creek pretty muddy, so we headed back downstream and fished one of the feeder creeks.
In the feeder we caught quite a few more fish including an 18 1/2 inch brown that is the biggest for the season,(well, kind of, he was somehow foul hooked.) and several nice healthy 14 inchers. We also caught a few brookies making roughly 30 fish between us.
We hit one more stream afterwards. It was a new stream for both of us, and it was filled with fish. It was getting dark, but we still ended up with around 6 fish, Including the highlight of the trip, Damien's first Tiger Trout!
Not a bad start to the season, look forward to heading out again.
|Talk about a pretty fish!|
|Not a bad start to the year! hopefully many more like this to come!|
