Summer Mountain Brookie Fishing

Got to sneak away yesterday for a mid week day with Dog for some summer brookies. Water was low and clear and we probably spooked many more fish than we caught but still had a good time to be sure. The highlight, at least for Dog, was coming upon a bee hive (several as it turned out) on the bank and disturbing them and as we hightailed it out of there from the first one, one got me in the lip. Fortunately I'm not allergic but made for a painful half hour or so.

Anyway, brookies never let me down for fun. We got to several pools where we dropped our dry from a distance and as it hit the water we would see a wake. First time I thought it was the wake of a spooked fish only to see it head for my fly like a torpedo that locked on to a warship. Then whack it would attack the fly. Kept me laughing every time it happened.

I love brookie fishing! They never seem to be big fish but they are damn colorful and well worth snapping a few pictures.

The really neat thing about low clear water is that when you spook fish or release the ones you caught, you can see exactly where they go to hide. It is so easy to see now how you can think a pool is devoid fish one day and like fishing in a barrel when the water is up and off color. I never realized how much space there is under submerged rocks. We would see multiple fish head for the same spot and disappear one after the other into the same hide. Really cool to see.

Hey Fox,would that be the stream I ran into you and Dog at before?Couple years ago had same thing happen to me.Fished my way back to my car took off my waders,it was a very hot day.Started
fishing my way upstream,all the sudden I feel stinging on my legs.I had stopped next to a rotting log which happened to be home to yellow jackets.My legs were covered with them.After a good run through the woods I dove into the stream.The joke was on the yellow jackets,a bunch got stuck in my sweatpants a drowned.Lesson learned,keep waders on,always.

I agree with y'all on the many enjoyable aspects of brookie fishing, hence the net handle.

Torpedo, that's great! I've seen this happen, but never thought about that analogy.

Bees? Man that must have sucked! I've been swarmed by mosquitos and that was awful. Bees must have been really bad.

Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
