Luckily with a lot of caution this can be overcome. If you are stealthy, keep a low profile, move at a snail's pace, and where dull colors you may get lucky and land one of the prettiest living things in existence.
That is how today went. I had a hard time catching the first fish, and then every one after that too. I saw over a hundred though. In the summer when this stream is low, I can catch hundreds in a day because they are concentrated in deep pools, riffles, and areas of coarse gravel. They are more predictable, more willing, and easier to approach. Also, the water tends to be tannin stained when their isn't much runoff.

I caught three today. I believe the next time I visit this stream there will be leaves on the trees, and the water will be very comfortable flowing around by legs. In the meantime I will visit streams with more colored water and dark bottoms!
