I love waking up with a chill in the morning, especially when it's 5 AM and you're about to go fishing. There is just something about the fall season that I truly love. The air feels clean, the leaves are showing off their beautiful colors, and the fish are hungry.
I got to the river at 6:30 or so and made myself comfortable. With the sun rising, everything seemed more enjoyable. Getting hung up, tying on more tippet, tying on a fly, repeat....it didn't really matter at that point in time. When my fly was active, it caught fish. I managed to land two on a walts worm and one on my first ever tied streamer pattern. My favorite BWO-Yea took the rest.
The browns have definitely started coming upstream as they were plentiful. Check out those spots in the pictures below! Simply beautiful. The brookie was a slob that fought really well. Overall, it was a great day of fishing. Get out there and have some fun. CATCH & RELEASE
