Landscape & scenery photos from Willowemoc Creek
My friend Ian throws a fine cast in a section of river that's open year-round. From the bridge, we spotted a very nice brown nymphing, but neither of us could get it to take.
This nice brown trout was so well-camouflaged at the bottom of the stream that he required a zoom lens, polarizing filter, and digital contrast enhancement to photograph. My friend Ian and I watched from the bridge as this big trout fed on nymphs for several minutes, and then we took turns trying to catch it. The selective brown practically laughed us off the river.

I love how clear the water can be in the Catskills when it hasn't rained for a little while. A polarizing filter (or sunglasses!) helps, too.

No surprise here considering we had virtually no snow this winter in the catskills but man, is the water low for this time of year!! Hard to sneak up on 'em and I'm seeing very few bugs!! Anyone see whats hatching up here in the catskills? I'm VERY worried that by July, the rivers will be dried up!!Reply
