Landscape & scenery photos from the Bois Brule River
This looks like a normal lake at first, but it's actually a natural, shallow widening in the channel of a famous trout stream. On clear days canoeists drift through and watch small trout and suckers swim beneath them. Large brown trout lay hidden in the weeds, hard to catch during the day but a fun challenge for any angler willing to brave the mosquitoes.
Here's another of my very frigid early nymph sampling sites.
I had hoped to sample some nymphs here, but I didn't bring an ice auger.
Good trout, both browns and rainbows, sometimes reside in the calm pockets alongside roaring rapids like these where most of the canoe traffic shoots quickly past. Few fishermen stop to cover these areas.
I strike at a hit in an inviting piece of dry fly water.

This beautiful habitat held some big risers that were too wary for me on one late July morning.
All along this fertile river, cedar sweepers like these shelter small brookies, browns, and rainbows.
