Hiking For Brook Trout

There is a tiny stream in the state forest near my home that contains some wild brook trout. I discovered it this summer while mountain biking. There is a man made pool bellow the small foot bridge that always holds a bunch of brookies. On the bike it is a quick ride, but on foot it is a trek. Today my brother and I made the walk to this amazing little stream. I brought along my 3 wgt. and a box of wetflies. I fished the deep pool and the one bellow it and caught 4 little wild brook trout. They all took a partridge and peacock soft hackle.


  1. Just beautiful Rowan! Those little guys are spectacular as is the typical Conn. red barn.
