The brook was low despite the spate the night before. The brook trout tended to be concentrated in the deeper sections that had a nice flow through them and their coloring was darker probably due to the increased concentration of tanin in the water. This spot below gave up three nice brook trout only one of which I was able to get to the hand.
Right along the submerged log was a favorite spot

I fished two flies this morning all of which got their share of attention, a Royal Wulff (red and chartreuse) and the Ausable bomber. I also fished with the Cabella's custom glass 3wt again. I really enjoy fishing this fun little rod in this type of water. It was able to get the flies into tight spots like the one below and still able to guide the fish around stream bed obstacles and into the hand.
It was a great morning out in the fresh mountain air. Here are more pictures from the morning...Enjoy
