Ended up trouting yesterday and other than the FULL sun, conditions were idyllic.

Was comfortable in full waders all day due to mild temps and the bugs were not really an issue other than a couple gnats in what's left of my hair.

Water was a bit silty in the lowest portion of the stream I was on, but that was easily rectified by moving a bit upstream.

The fishing was off though and while I did manage around 25 to hand (15-ish brookies and 10-ish browns), it took me all day (8:00-5:30).

Sitting on 5 fish at the time, almost went home around lunch to get other things done but glad I stuck it out as I got the majority of my fish in the afternoon.

At the end of the day, moved to a typically brown-dominated stretch looking for a big fish or two to cap the day and caught a bunch of brookies instead.

Did get my favorite fish of the day though...


Was around 5:00 and the sun was wretched so couldn't really frame a decent photo or avoid heavy contrast, but you get the idea of how cool this fella was.

Soon as I saw his billboard flash, I'm like, "WANT!" Drool

Have caught a couple thousand browns over the years and have only seen this red flush maybe 4 or 5 times. Definitely my favorite variant on a trout. Nice little kype going too.

He's gonna spawn the F out of this stream! Laugh

Beautiful fish.

Look at the size of those spots and halos!

Nice fish!
