J and I decided to test some Brookie waters. Decided poorly?
All of this on one huge watershed.
Rolled onto the first target at 10:00ish. 26 degrees.

Really good looking stream. Lots of wood, tight maneuvering.
Really good gradient and substrate.
Icy rocks. Icy everything.

After 200 yards, no bites. Water temp was 39.
We backed out. And we will be back.

A short, sloppy dirt/gravel drive later brought us to #2.
Lower gradient, more water. Lots of wood, good substrate.
Will be an awesome dry fly stream.
Buttttt, not a good nymphing stream. Yesterday, anyhow.

Another 2-300 yards fished, back out.
40 degree water.
On to #3.

Even more wood. Really good medium gradient, good substrate.
All three will be good wildflower streams.
Puttyroot orchid. With last summer's bloom stalk.

Backed out on an old logging road.
42 degree water.
No fish between us. Good scouting, though.
Will be back when the water warms a bit.

I've seen them, but had no idea they were called " witches broom".  I learned my 1 tidbit for the day.  Now I can nap.  Many thanks.

I'm currently 0 for 2 on trips this year.  First trip was in January after snow. Stupid on my part.  Not even a sign of a fish.  Hot spotting pictures.
