Not much I like better in trout fishing than making my way up a boulder strewn mountain stream. I hiked up an upper section of the ‘home stream’ this afternoon. The warm weather earlier in the week has the flows still a bit too high but I was able to scramble upstream and fish the rocky pocket water of this little river.
The cooler weather today and cloudy evening skies seemed to turn on the fish. I caught more little Cutts & ‘Bows than I could count. In one pretty little run I caught 3 on 3 casts then got a 4th when I threw my line to fix a tangle… It’s funny, the Rainbows fly into the air the instant they feel the hook and the cutts do just the opposite. Some of the Cutthroat in the upper section had a very different sort of coloration, very dark and heavily spotted, spawning colors maybe? Gorgeous little fish!
