Southern brook trout

Post by Eperous »

Just returned home from the Commonwealth of Virginia, on a trip cut short a couple days thanks to the "partial shutdown" of our federal government and closure of the Shenandoah National Park...

When I was a kid, last century, I recall playing stickball with other kids, who if someone didn't like the agreed-to-rules, would take their twenty-five-cent red-rubber-ball and go home... I won't go there, but only mention brook trout fishing in VA.... I had a very nice time, though no hiking along the Skyline Drive this trip...

Some photos...

I missed a couple beauties, a foot-long or better brook trout in autumn spawning colors... I hope/plan to return again in October 2014 and hope SNP is open/functional then...

Redietz, thinking of YOU on this past trip south....

You have no idea how much I wish I'd been there. Foot and knee problems have kept from going places like SNP and I haven't caught a brookie in months.

Nothing says autumn to me like a brook trout in its spawning colors. Thanks for the photos.
