This day the fish were mostly holding in the head of the pools where the more oxygenated water was or in deeper runs with plenty of water moving. Today I would enjoy the colors of the forest from flash of a bronze belly in the foam line as a brook trout took a sunk lime trude, to the fish showing a lot of red in the fins and bellies, to the abundant display of wildflowers awaiting those who are willing to venture on the trails not often traveled.
