New Water

I fished a new section of stream on Monday morning. The terrain of this stream varies widely from level fields of corn and hay to steep near vertical ridges making some sections very hard to access. This pic doesn't really show the steep descent to the stream but it's the only one I thought to take.
In this pic you see a large rock outcropping on the left side of the stream. Deep water made me climb up the ridge using roots and small trees for handholds.

The water was slightly stained but I managed to catch several nice healthy looking smallies in the 9 to 11 inch range.

Your never alone when your fishing a stream. This little fella was out for a late breakfast.

Then he decided the eating might be better on the other side of the stream.
All to soon my watch said that it was time to head back to the truck. It was a good morning spent on new water and I filed this section of stream in the back of my mind to return again someday.

I envy you Grayphase....I haven't had the rod in the water this summer but two hours and now the local trout stream all but dried up! I'll send you a pic it's pitiful.
