I usually cover a lot of water when I fish small streams but this afternoon I took 5 good sized browns from the same pool in a couple of hours. The fish were very colorful with golden brown flanks and fought as only wild fish do, including a couple of that put on quite an aerial show! All the fish were taking on a #20 Griffith's Gnat. The last brown of the day was taken in some riffles using a soft hackle version of the bead head pheasant tail.
I visited the same stretch of water this afternoon arriving a little after 3PM. When I arrived there was very little midge activity and a odd rising fish here and there. I did manage two brook trout in the riffles on a parachute olive.
