Landscape & scenery photos from the Bois Brule River
An annoying, trout-scaring brood of mergansers shoots a rapids in reverse.
Several mergansers leave their rock in a mess.
My dad nearly broke a long troutless slump fighting a 16-inch rainbow in fast water. It spit the hook after a while.
This porcupine seemed to be feeding on the filamentous green algae that had accumulated around the tip of a fallen cedar sweeper on a classic piece of northwoods trout water.
It seems somebody lost a fly on a tree limb as they floated down the river, and this bat flew by and attacked it and got stuck. Either that, or the bat caught their fly as they were fishing and wrapped it around the limb as he was fighting to get away. Either could happen, although the former possibility is a bit more likely.
A whitetail doe and her fawn lurk in the shadows, waiting to strike.
This tail end of a large glassy flat holds many nice rising trout most summer evenings, and it's extremely demanding of both stealth and fine casting.
Look at the hole in that thing's mouth... no wonder mergansers are a threat to trout.
