This was my first trip to a favorite Adirondack Brook since the trout season opened in New York. I love this brook for it's lovely plunge pools and the rugged country it runs through. Several short lived thunderstorms rolled through the mountains in the morning. The humid air was filled with the fragrance of a damp pine forest and the music of many tiny rivulets carrying the morning's run off.
The fish were not interested in the usual dry flies, most likely holding closely to the bottom of the deep plunge pools. A few brook trout were brought to hand using a weighted mini peacock bugger. There were several interesting wildflowers in bloom along the brooks bank. It was wonderful to be out in the Adirondacks again far from traveled paths.
