Black as night. The rain came, it washed leaves and other staining substances into the river, and the water turned a mesmerizing dark black, surrounding the light colored rocks and just making an awesome scene over all. Of course the Salmon had gone from under 20 cfs to over 300, and the stocked trout are not used to drastic changes in flow, so the fishing wasn't it's best. One take on an Ausable Ugly. I fished a small stream too, and that pulled the skunk off my head but not with the intended wild brown and brook trout that live there, but small creek chubs. I did get a brooky to take, but did not hook it. Tomorrow is another day, and I'm sure Saturday will provide some really good wild trout.
