It is indeed the fall but it's dry, windy, warm, not quite bright. I'm not surprised if I see someone running with tunktop and shorts! I won't worry as we know winter will come for sure.
Our fall adventure continues. Renee has caught most species around here since she started fly-fishing this spring. We've been counting down. What's left on the list are: Grayling (we tried), Westslope Cutthroat (fished stream that may contain fair population), and brook trout. Considering the season and fish population in general, I thought we can cross off brookies within this year!
I took her to one of my brookie destinations during summer months with beginner fishers. Well, I was wrong. Water temperature got really low in the higher country. We did nymphing all through but we didn't get any bites from those who over-compete on our dry-flies during summer months!!
So we decided to move on and try "fall-runners" again. On the way, I thought of a spot we could try for brookies. At least we could take a look. We spotted doable numbers of swimmers and some structures looked really appealing and expecting. So we decided to give a shot here.
Her first brookie came only after a few casts!!
