1st LI Trout + trailer lights fix ~~~4-13-12

Carmans. River
I was supposed to be in MD this weekend fishing the rivers for TROUT -
but my friends bailed out a few weeks ago...

didnt want to give the days back @ work - So I decided to try for LI Trout for the 1st Time....

Went to the Carmans River... what a Beautiful place. buy a $3 fishing permit ( have to have the NY STATE Freash lic as well) and you can DRIVE through the woods to differnt locations.. pretty cool
Took All Day 8:30-4pm but I caught a few Trout
1 Rainbow @ 11-12"
1 NATIVE Brook Trout @ 11"

I tryed Fly fishing - but most of the good spots were taken by NOON. managed to raise one fish and had a Nice Rainbow hook up but he came off..

1st LI Trout ~~~ 4-13-12

I was supposed to be in MD this weekend fishing the rivers for TROUT - and the Suskie for Stripes.
but my friends bailed out a few weeks ago.
I wasn't about to give the days back @ work -( going non stop @ work since October) So I decided to try for LI Trout for the 1st Time....So quickly put together a 5wt Fly rod outfit + the UL outfit..

Hit one our Local Rivers for the 1st time... what a Beautiful place.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Air - 48 - 60
Water - Cold 49-50?
Wind - West 10-15 -- chsnged to SW by afternoon
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

pretty chilly in the AM
on the water by 8:40ish..
not many anglers @ 1st..

decided to scout with the UL spinning rod 1st..

little gnats? flying every where.. not much foliage on any of the plants.. still pretty brown all around.

waded in to get a lay of the land... took me a while but found a promising looking tree over hang,,, 1st cast put the lure right were I wanted .... Had a trout follow it all the way out from his hiding spot and flash @ it...no hook up...but What a great sight. lost the lure on the 2nd cast -- broke it off.. oh well..

10 am? moved down river ... ran into a great Fly rodder - watched him hook into a Nice fish..Brown?
Spoke to him after... gave me so Nice tips for about 20-30 min.. back @ it and 10 min later I nailed my 1st evet LI TROUT - Sweet 11-12" Rainbow.. Beautiful Fish.. Never left the water popped out right after posing for the pict..

moved back up river...
@ about noon... had a sweetwater surprise..
got hammered by a Native Brook Trout.. My 1st brookie ever...popped off and gently laid in my hand under water for 1 shot then shot off after that..

2 min later Had another fish hit do aerial and break off - small maybe 8"

1pm Switch to the FLY
raised 1 fish
and had a nice Rainbow on for about 6 seconds...but popped off as I put too much pressure on the line due to over excitement...

called it quits as the wind was screaming in my face out of the south @ 4pm..

A great DAY.. couldnt have asked for a better 1st LI Trout trip
-----------------------------------------------------
Total:
1 Rainbow @ 11-12"
1 NATIVE Brook Trout @ 11"
-----------------------------------------------------
- saw a little fish sitting in the river next to me, sat still enough to get an under water shot of him...showed it to DEC rep.. said it looked like a "Darter"..see below.
-Got home @ 5 - just enough time to fix the trailer lights..

Good to be back ~Have a Great Spring..
