I went trout fishing yesterday. It was toasty and wonderful. Have you moved to Vermont?
I know, I whine. Walked a stream yesterday to take the photo. Amazing how in one night the stream went from being about six feet wide to about two feet of water available. Above freezing temps would be nice.
Local variation is interesting. Where I fished yesterday there was hardly any ice around. (I've put some pictures in the usual place).
Yeah, those two streams are about eight miles apart as the mayfly flies. Two differences, I think: 1) I believe the stream you fished is a tailwater vs the one I walked is a top release. The water is cooled dramatically by the falls at the dam and the thin water above and, 2) the valley I walked is very narrow and gets little sun (which makes photos a challenge too), so it warms little during the sunny portions of the day.
Dang. And gorgeous photo!
Good point - I'd overlooked that my chosen stream was a tailwater. It's designation has connotations of wild and free; but not the case.
But she has some gorgeous Brookies. Next break I get I'm heading back.
Makes me want to curl up under a blanket. Great photo.Thanks for sharing.
Thx. I didn't stick around for long. It was cold!
