Checking in

After spending the morning helping the wife out with her yard sale there were a couple of free hours to check on a local stream that got hit pretty hard by the fire last year.  At first arrival I was worried, then when I got my feet in the stream I was really worried!  The water felt warm (I was wet wading) took out the stream thermometer and sure enough the water was about 67 degrees.  I fished a couple of the deeper holes and found a few willing trout (cutts and browns).  Not many fish seen, even fewer active fish.  I walked and looked way more than I fished and was disappointed by what I saw.  Sad sight indeed, felt like checking in on a sick friend.
