While I almost never share where I go fishing, I don't think this photo will ruin the stream. For a Monday - and probably because is the week of Thanksgiving, this area was pretty full of fisherman. Just the thing I avoid when fishing - people. It's been ten years since I chased trout.
Despite being packed in like sardines, I did get to speak with the guy next to me off and on over a few hours. While I did have some nice ones on the line, I managed to land three nice ones. Dad put on a show. He landed a number of them. Figures.
I drifted a set up I'm not used to - drifting and egg with a sow bug or soft hackle tethered and small split shot. It was effective. But I switched to a bugger and landed one more before heading home.
Guess I'll be heading back. While the island was productive and packed, I may hit up the Swinging Bridge with some streamers next time. While the 4 wgt. CGt was fun, I may take a heavier rod. Struggled with a few big Browns while drifting in swift riffles.
