Labor Day Weekend Browns
This weekend, my reggae band had a show in Hartford, not my favorite place in the world, but hey, also not far from a river that I haven't been to in a year. I guess it was a compromise, I did have to cross the Connecticunt River, but fishing was involved, so it all evens out.
This river looked to be in great fishable condition, cold water, great flow, insects, clear water.. really good stuff. With four of us out there, we didn't miss a pool, whether we fished it, or spooked it. these fish were pretty smart, and saw us coming several times, but in the end, the hunger of small brown trout for the dry fly overcame. Nobody caught anything bigger than a hand, but fooling them on the surface is always fun, size doesn't matter :)
small, but cold and deep. many parts of this stream were over my knees!!! super deep
