Well, they haven't been very big, but they have been biting...Wednesday night on The Rifle at Sage Lake Road (which closes two weeks from yesterday) was a beautiful night with ample caddisflies and a few mayflies, but the river would give me nothing over 9" or 10" so no pics. Last night on [REDACTED] Pond didn't yield anything bigger, but one of the brookies had a color variation I have never before seen. Notice the abundance of cream-colored spots WITHOUT pink dots and blue halos, like only 5 on each side and the rest empty. The other three (all smaller) I caught looked "normal" (and just gorgeous), so who knows? Somebody let a few splake go in there?? Anyone else seen this?

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
