Looks like the brookies made it through the summer..water temps are in the 40's now and we received some rain..They have spawned and are looking to fatten up...Caddis, stoneflys, and Blue Quills were hatching...Plus saw a light (yellow ?) spinner size 14...Midges too...Lots of small fish so they survived...

I agree that osme of the big ones survived, but I have noticed that on the 6 or so streams I have fished in the past 2 weeks are mostly populated by the 3 inchers. Does that mean all of the average fish (6-7") are gone? Seems like every trip I do catch a couple in the 8-9" range. I guess this is a good thing, becasue I like to see the best genetics passed on, and after the doubts last summer a 9" fish has to have superior genes to make it through.

The fingerling trout (3-4" ers) are first to the take and usually spook the bigger fish. They are also usually in the poorer lies. (tail outs, shallow flats, etc.) Try targeting the best lie in the hole with the first cast to get a shot at the best fish. If you fish small streams from the back of the pool to the front, you will be less likely to land any big fish.

Every good hole in a small stream has a pool boss, the rest are sentrys that tip off the bully.

Don't hit me with them negative waves so early in the morning. Think the bridge will be there and it will be there. It's a mother, beautiful bridge, and it's gonna be there. Ok?

Mo, that nugget might be better served in it's own thread in the tips and tricks section. It's a good one, and a bit of knowledge that I often forget about on the stream. I see that first fish and can't resist a shot at the little guy. I know I'm missing shots at the bigger guys, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. I'm going to make it a point to target larger fish next season, and this is one of the methods I'll use.

That, and finally getting some faith in streamers.
