That stream produced some nice fish for both of us but we didn't see any real monsters, so we moved on. We went to a stream that we honestly had no idea what to expect in. Turns out there were a few brookies and plenty of small chubs and fall fish.
The next stream we fished is a little more familiar, I caught some big fish there this winter and last fall. I got a few average fish and one 9 in. beauty on a Picket Pin, but Jon knocked it out of the park with a few really nice fish on the Ausable Bomber.

I fished the second to last stream of the day in February, caught one little brookie and decided I must return. Unfortunately it gets quite a bit of pressure, in fact there were boot prints there that indicated that someone else had already fished it that day. I caught a few little guys and that was that for brook trout. We made one more stop and caught a few yellow perch and I even got a tiny smallmouth before calling it a day.
