The Deerfield

I made it out fishing one evening last week with Russell on the Deerfield section of the river.  Named after the herds of deer I used to see in the immense field than lays between the road and the river last week we saw only 2 deer on our walk out at dusk.

Last week we had fished 1/4 mile upstream with poor success, but this night the Fishing Gods smiled upon us and we had an enjoyable evening catching Smallmouth bass and Rock bass.

I lost the biggest fish of the night, a Smallie probably 15 inches or so, as I was trying to land it, but it was still a very satisfying evening with a good number of 10 to 13 inch Smallies and several large Rock bass.

Hopefully we'll be able to make it out several more times before the Hunting season enthralls us.
