Good Sunday morning

Post by JoeCz »

Got out early on a small creek in Sullivan County and did well. No risers at that time of day, but various Sz 14 mayfly nymphs worked for a few browns from 12 - 19", plus a 10" brookie! Always nice to see one of those in the net.

Hope everyone else is doing well--not seeing a lot of fishing posts lately.

Those danged isonychia seem to work all season long don't they?

Nice fish JoeCz!
Especially the Brookie.
From the picture, it looks quite silvery...any chance it’s a salter?
Don't take it for granite, it's a gneiss day.

The brookies in this creek (the couple I’ve caught) just seem to be colored this way. I’ve seen darker-colored ones from other streams in the Catskills. I‘m pretty sure biologists have identified several strains/geographically isolated populations. I can’t imagine a Sullivan County fish would go out to sea—maybe potentially the Delaware?

Gotchya.
I was thinking maybe the drainage of the stream you were fishing ran East into Hudson. Perhaps if that was the case I thought it might be possible.

But if your stream eventually runs into the Delaware then probably very unlikely it’s a Salter. That would be a long way to go, right? Haha
