Preparing for winter

Well the fishing kind of stopped for me due to work, however I have been preparing for winter and tying up piles of pheasant tails (pheasant tail + copper wire = easy, fast and traditional), royal wulffs, and some buggers.

Just looked out my window to snow in October, looks like winter fishing has come early for some.

Sunday Fishing

We went out to this stream last weekend and spotted a few fish around the place so we decided to head back this Sunday. The plan was to get a brook trout in the net. We walked down from the parking lot along the stream to some really nice pools, all very yellow in colour due to the autumn leaves. All the nice pools did not produce a fish and it was not until we got back to the bridge next to the car did we hook a 2-3" trout, however it got off before getting it in hand. This was repeated another time before successfully getting one in the net. From what I could tell the trout looked to be a juvenile brown, not the planned brook trout. However, from the internet the juvenile trout all look very similar.

The fishing started out in a nice wide stream and at the end was on a very small stream overgrown with rododendras.

PA fishing

The weather has been up and down over the last few weeks. However, we have been getting out for both warm water and trout fishing. With the spring creek canyon open now we decided to head in and see what we could find and that was nothing. Well we did get some brownies before the canyon, but only had a few splashy rises that did not hook up in the canyon. It would be worth another go once the novelty wears off.
