Landscape & scenery photos from the Namekagon River
A 20-inch brown jumps at the end of my dad's fly line, but the picture quality isn't the best. He could just as easily be shaking his fist at a beaver.
This deer ran at least a hundred yards in front of our canoe before it finally decided to get out of the river. Here it just hurdled a beaver dam.
This is one of the best-looking spots for a big trout that I've ever seen; all the river's current pushes food into one deep, narrow lane full of overhead cover and obstructions for fish to hold behind. I've not caught anything in the few times I've fished it, but I suspect that's my fault, not the river's.
Brad Bohen and I were scouting on this canoe trip, so we didn't stop to fish this appealing remote hole. I suspect it holds monsters--it's certainly fine water, far from where others usually fish.
The moon backlights a willow after midnight on a favorite trout stream.
