I headed off to fish some new water today, new to me, that is.  I have fished the lower end of this stream but today was my first time fishing the headwaters.  I was pleased, I shall return.

The day started off pretty good, I caught a decent 9 inch brown on my second cast, he refused to have his picture taken.  A few casts later, I caught a rainbow.  The next few hours were pretty strong, the fish were very eager.  All but one fish was caught on the green weenie, I did catch one on the dry.

I was catching rainbows and browns, more rainbows but still catching a fair share of browns.  As I fished on up, I knew I should be getting into some brooks soon.  Soon enough, they showed up.  No matter how high I climbed, rainbows were still the predominant species I caught.  I was a bit surprised at how high of elevation I was still catching browns.

I got to the point where I had to exit the stream or fish on through a gorge with no exit point until you reach the end.  I was getting tired and hungry, so I decided to head back to the truck for some lunch.

Peanut butter/jelly/bacon sammich, very tasty.

After a short break, I headed down to lower end to try my luck.  Within 10 minutes, I had five small rainbows and 3 others I hooked and lost.  I thought I was going to really catch some large numbers.  I fished on for another 45 minutes with nothing, not even a strike.  I decided to call it a day and head home.

I think I will soon revisit the headwaters of this stream when I can spend all day there.  There are a few feeders I also want to explore.

A peanut butter and jelly bacon sandwich?  :-\  Have always thought bacon would be good on anything, until I head this combination....May have to give it a try sometime.  Nice bows too.  A couple had some size on them!

The smokey/sweet/salty flavors all compliment each other very well.  It really is very good.   The bacon must be very crisp, very crisp, that is the key.
