Yes. That same spot. I have stood there in early spring and watched fish eating stoneflies in that pool below bridge. I caught one that was probably 24" in that pool on a wooly bugger when the air temp was in the 20's. I knew I would only get a couple casts before my line froze up and I got the fish right away. There must be plenty in there to eat for them because the fish seem to stay in good shape when they hold over. It's not exactly my preferred kind of fishing but it is interesting to pick your way along in that meadow making short casts to likely spots and then hook a giant.I hooked, and played, a monster rainbow under the bridge leading up to the home on the hill. I was sitting on the stone foundation of the bridge. It ate a Squirmy Wormie and I was able to bring it close a few times. It was in the 24 " - 25" range. My net was too small and I really didn't see any point in getting off the stone foundation to make an attempt to net it. After about 10 minutes it lunged back under The bridge and broke me off.
