Tenkara -- November 2, 2015

I was able to get onto the river on this past Monday. The weather was supposed to be rainy but it turned out to be a pretty good day. I should have brought my video set up but I didn't because of the forecast for rain.

I fished a section of the river that I had fished just once before. I did pretty well at that previous trip, but there was one pool that I could see the trout but I could not get them to take anything. This time I was determined to get some hook ups in that pool.

I was able to get many fish out of that pool by lengthening my line and approaching the pool from a different angle.

As I worked my way upstream I took mostly cutthroats. I've watched this water change over the years, from brown trout water to cutthroat water. This doesn't break my heart. I like them both but I prefer cutthroats, since they are native.  I did take a few rainbows too.

After fishing about 2 hours, and taking just under 20 fish, I walked back to the car and headed home. I was another beautiful late autumn day in the mountains.

  1. Tom, what makes brown vs cutthroat water? (unless you meant that the fish being found there simply changed from mostly browns to mostly cutthroats, then I'll be embarrassed)

    Beautiful colors in those last two shots.
