|The stream running over a small ledge, is there a pool at the bottom?|
Alan and I stopped at another stream and fished a bit without too much interest. I did have a small brook trout grab the pinkie a couple times but did not get the hook in it's mouth. I stopped by a deep hole and there was a little open water in the middle and I saw a nice sized fish on station. It did take the pinkie twice, but I wasn't able to set the hook. I tried a small black bugger along the ice ledge and it came back again for a third time but again I could not set the hook. Actually, I'm not sure I could have landed it and released it safely with the amount of shelf ice along the stream bank.
I stopped at a third stream on the way home. It also looked very inviting. The ice made fishing it very tough but I will back again in the spring to really check it out. As I was leaving I noticed a small osprey perched in a tree above the stream looking for some dinner.
