Late morning I am walking along the bank I observe a rise under a tree. I roll cast my Soft Hackle PT above the rise, let it swing down and on the first twitch the water boiled and I was into a gorgeous wild brown, which totally exceeded my expectations, as this one was the largest wild brown I have caught in this stream. Measured out at ten inches. I continued fishing upstream and found a few more assorted wild browns willing to play.
After lunch I fished another section, a long. deep pool and spotted a rise at the end of said pool. Fishing the same SHPT, drifted over the fish and was into my second personal best wild brown in this stream. Continued fishing this pool and landed two more smaller cousins to the larger brown.
The last fish of the day was in another section, photos below, where one the prettiest of the day fell for the SHPT. And as I always try to do ended the day on a positive note. Enjoy the photos below. These are some of the most beautiful wild browns in the state. The first and third are my two best wild browns.
