Of all the places to pop a nice one! This is literally right off the highway just north of the middle of town. I have heard of occasional stockings of this pond, and it has a nice little brookie stream feeding out of a nice thick cedar swamp for holdovers to hide in...took a #10 KBF in brown and red with gold bead-chain eyes, and swallowed it whole, had it stuck in the roof of it's mouth like a bass would. Fought like hell on my new 2-weight! Not a bad start to my season, huh? More to come!

Tight lines to all!!!

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

Jonathon, nice fish man! I was hoping the weather would be more cooperative, but alas no, I live in Michigan. So, Im heading up to fish my favorite branch of a very pretty river, snow or not. I was hoping a warm up would get fish looking up and I could leave the nymphing rod at the car, but it looks like nymphing and maybe some streamers are in the forecast for this week. I hope my waders are a little less leaky, as patched some spots, and bought a wash soap for waders. I shall see, if not, new waders! I really hope all of you troutnuts are able to get out and do this thing we love safely, I really don't think social distanceing is problem for most of us.
Take care, Mike.

We're supposed to drop into the 20's F tonight, Mike, so I'd keep the nymphs and streamers handy...gonna be a while before we see much dry-fly activity. Though, they were surfacing at the millpond...time for a #10 Royal Wulff?

Tight lines Mike!
