Small Stream Action

Today felt like a trout day, so I headed to the Salmon. It sucked.

I biked past some random small streams and thought to myself "they have to have fish." They didn't suck. The first cast with a calf tail bomber and a trout whacked it. I only briefly felt his fight. Ho worries, the next cast a nice little salmon par took. I worked my way upstream to find at the head of the next pool a perfect lie. The cast was made, and a beautiful trout of sizable proportions came up and slurped down the bomber. I continued fishing with only on hit and soon reached a pool too big and slow to fish and decided to check the other little creek. It poured out chubs and salmon par. The only trout was seen right as I was leaving and I threw a pine cone too his feeding lane to see his reaction. The crazy little brooky came up and whacked it! I decided to come back and catch him another day.

Chubs. They can be a pain.

Pretty salmon par.
