I went to my favorite stream today, in hopes that the storms had brought the water level up. No such luck. I did manage two brookies, which is unusual for this stream. one was a little wild one, the other bigger and probably either a holdover or stocked. Who knows, this stream does have a fair population of big (16-20 inch) wild Browns, there ought to be some big native Brookies somewhere in it. Maybe he was one. He didn't fight like a stocker, but his gill plate was short.
