This morning was pretty cold, even a bit colder than I was planning on, and I was greeted by freshly fallen snow on the summit. I never really thought about wussing out, which I'll take as a good sign, but I knew I should've brought some more warm clothes.
Not a bad way to start.
|Mission accomplished! But I still kept the pink on for most of the day...|
Biggest fish of the day at 21"
Beautiful Rainbow that fought like a champ!
After the nice Brown Trout, I was ready to declare the day a success. So I began fishing more quickly, trying to make some headway back towards my car, and fishing only my favorite spots. I must know how to pick them! The above Rainbow Trout, that actually has faint orange slashes suggesting that it may be a Cut-bow, took my nymph to the air! After a couple of good runs, jumps, and a little tail walking it was back to trying to make my way back to the parking area. But I just couldn't help and fish one more spot that provided me with the fourth trout species for the day, a Tiger Trout. It isn't very big, but it still counts!
|Not pretty, but it's still a Tiger Trout.|
|The last fish of the day, a nice Cutthroat on the pink.|
Not everyday could be like this, it'd be boring, but I'm sure glad that some of them are. Hopefully you can get out and enjoy the water.
