In this big pool I saw what I thought was a decent Brown rising. However it ended up being the Salmon Parr in the picture bellow.
I decided at one point to go exploring. I wanted to try out some pools I hunted out over the winter. They were a royal pain in the ass to get too! I must have bushwhacked/waded two miles. I saw two wild trout and caught one stocker, along with tons of these:
I had expected, as is usually the case, that the further I went the chubs and browns would transition to smaller brown and then eventually brook trout. It appears this stream is the reverse.
I highly doubt there is much angling pressure in that stretch of water, SO WHERE ARE THE TROUT?
It looks good, its cold, and has plenty of food (including millions of big crayfish). Maybe I was just unlucky.
