I took a bit of time for myself before visiting hours Wednesday. There is a small stream 5 minutes up the road that is supposed to have native Brookies in it. So I grabbed a pole out of the closet, pulled a few worms out of the garden, put my boots on, and headed up. The pole had a small jig with a 2” plastic grub, I forgot the bobbers, but I figured if the excursion ended up just a a walk in the woods, well, nothing wrong with that either. My boots are calf high and I wondered if they were high enough (spoiler alert-they weren’t 🥴)

In the 40 years I’ve lived here, I’ve fished this brook but never really seriously “fished” it before. I fished a few brooks in the area that look enticing, and didn’t get anything, but we live on the edge where the water gets just a tad too warm to support Brook Trout, so I never really put in the time to do it justice. You always go where the pickings are easier. But a friend who grew up in the area said a worm and a bobber would get you dinner. So I’ve wanted to give it a proper try.

A very pleasant and quiet morning it was. High thin clouds, warm enough for just a light jacket, but chill enough to keep the bugs at bay. Walking upstream were the signs of Spring: Woodpeckers peckering, a pair of ducks silently winging their way through the trees ang and the new generation of flora showing in areas recently covered by water. The pictures will narrate the rest of the trip. All in all, it was a good outing.

Captivating story GMchief, along with your photo support! Looks like a great stream, and perhaps a future visit will reveal where the brookies are hiding out. Hope you were able to engage with Nature and clear your mind too....

I did see a nice bulge and flash in the water at one point. You know the story-peripheral vision sideways: did I see that or not? I didn’t see it again so I’m going with it being a fish. I’ll try that spot again-after I get waders😆

Little creeks like that is some good fishing around here if you can get a couple of miles back in the woods off the road 🎣🎣🎣
Hope you get a chance to go back, I'm sure there's fish there👍

Beautiful spot Glen. Good place to recharge the soul, even without fish. 🙏

Alluring pics there Glen and have myself a little stream that produces trout when it isn't over fished near me too. First time there it was just a walk around the park and noticed the serenity of the location and a must do with waders was on my mind for the next visit.

Once you feel that cool feeling around your legs when stepping into the water, the investment of the waders will be one of the best you ever made.

Beautiful day getting out there. I’ve fished NH streams around Meredith for trout. Berkeley yellow salmon eggs have worked well for me.

I’m more in between Dover and Rochester on the Maine side of the river. I was considering getting some salmon eggs but this was a spur of the moment trip. Red salmon eggs always produced we when we fished the Skykomish as a kid.

Thank you, Ed. How’s Cassie? It looks like things are starting to get a little better on my end, but a long road still ahead for us. 🤞
