Fast forward to yesterday the 27th. I was fishing a new stream out near lacrosse and caught probably over 70 trout from 11am-3pm. About 60% were browns, and 39% were brookies, 1% northern pike. This time i wasn't fishing a low stretch of the creek at all, and in the same hole i caught the tiny northern pike out of i also caught around 10 brookies and 5 browns. I imagine that pike will be quite a bit bigger in a few years!
A few pools upstream i had a brookie, about 8 inches on, and had a GIANT brown come up and try to eat the brookie. I would guess the brown at ~24" I fished the pool for a good 45 minutes throwing every kind of streamer i had in the box, including big nasty articulated leeches (did i mention i was using a 1 wt. that day?)
|All three of the above were out of the same hole!|
|not the best picture, but here's the other pike|
I also threw together a little video from last weeks fishing. I haven't done much filming so far this season, but i figured i'd throw something out. Didn't spend a whole lot of time one it, but let me know what you think!
