Off the Schneid

First Trout of the Season

It took me a few outings, but I've finally put the first trout of the season in the net.

So I was hanging around the house Sunday morning, looking outside. It had been sunny, bright, and hot for several days - not optimal trout fishing conditions - but this morning was overcast with a on again off again drizzle. "Ah ha!!!".

So I negotiated some fishing time with my better half and broke all manner of speed records getting gear loaded into the car and off I went to a favorite stretch of water.

which produced several trout similar to this one, and one beauty rainbow that slipped away before I could snap a pic.

I wish now I had taken a water temp. There wasn't much in the way of insect activity going on - a stray yellow sally here and there - but the fish were definitely interesting in feeding as they bopped a drifted nymph with gusto.

It appears that trout season is here to stay.


Bob, nice brown you have there, beautiful pics of the small stream. Was he taken on a dry?
