|Wood aster dominate the September|
While the first stream was disappointingly low, I did have a plan B in mind. Arriving at a second brook, I could see that the water was low but still cold and there were still pockets of deeper water for the fish to take refuge in. Even though I brought along a small fly box, I really only need one fly for the couple hours I fished, a #16 foam ant. Anywhere there was a little depth and some moving water there was usually a brook trout waiting to pounce on the ant. It was so nice to fish a small stream once again after a very dry summer.
