I had planned today to go up to the Farmington with my father, but his morning we examined the forecasts and models. It appeared that we would be rained out, making it hardly worth the long drive to sit in the car, watching fish rise and lightning strike.
We decided to got to a local river for Smallmouth Bass, Carp, and Sunfish. Although there are some big ones in that stream, we ended up catching dink after dink, but still having tons of fun doing so. Even the little ones don't give up, and jump enough to satisfy. I would say they are at least even with wild Brown Trout in there fighting capabilities.
