Today my Dad and I drove to a Pocahontas county Brook Trout stream only to find it high and off color from the rain the night before. At that point we decided we would continue driving north to find some more fishable water. After stopping at another Brook trout stream it too was high and unfishable. We did do some exploration and fish a stream that should've had fish in it, however our efforts turned up nothing. Back in the truck we drove a little farther north and found ourselves heading towards an old favorite. We started at the junction of a tributary stream and fished upstream on the main stem. Following a little trial and error, we hit money when we found out the fish were keying on bright colored nymphs not the dry flies I would've preferred. Dad and I fished for about a hour or so and having dinner plans with my mother, we had to high tail it all the way home from Pendleton Co. back to Summers Co. A day well spent with a few fish caught.

Today Beaver and I left Preston County headed north for Centre County, PA and some of the finest Limestone influenced trout water I ever stepped foot into. After a little fiasco of buying our liscence at the local Wal-Mart, we finally made it to the water. Beaver said he was going to nymph fish and I decided to streamer fish. Almost immediately, I had moved 3 or 4 fish at the first hole only to lose them or fail to get a good hook set. Beaver quickly had moved and caught a couple of nice fish including a really nice rainbow. I finally hooked and landed a nice brown on a size 2 double bunny, and wouldn't you know it, I forgot my camera. Thanks Beav for the picture. Around lunch time, I switched the streamer rod for the nymph rod and shortly after that we went to check out a new section. Around 2pm, we came upon a really nice BWO hatch and I played catch up catching 7 more Browns. Again no camera. Around 5pm, we called it a day.

Today I finally made a trip with the infamous Nate Rees. I picked him up after his last class on a brisk and overcast Monday morning. We headed south and arrived just shortly after 10:30am. We strung up our rods, and hit the first pool. At the first pool, I hooked and landed a nice Rainbow and Brown which proved to be my best two fish of the day. After fishing a short section upstream, we headed to another section of stream. Nate landed a really nice Rainbow and a few other fish. The total of fish caught today weren't really important catching enough to make the outing worthwhile. Much thanks to Nate for the amazing photography.
