Into The Wilderness

For a long time a particular stream in the Monongahela National Forest has been on my list of places to fish.  Today I finally checked this one off the list.  I had made plans with a good friend Allen Marshall to go fish said stream.  I picked Allen up at 6:30am and we headed South for Elkins and then made our way to the trailhead into the Wilderness.  This particular Wilderness extends for over 20,000 acres and covers land in both Randolph and Tucker counties.  Today would be no walk in the park because at the end of the day we had put boot to earth for over 8 miles round trip not counting what had been covered while wading in the stream. 

When Allen and I arrived we walked down the trail that parrallels the stream and we finally decided to start fishing after walking for over 2 hours.  The flows for July 30th were astonishing in the respect that there was so much water one would have thought it could have been May not July.  In some areas it seemed as if there was almost too much water, but it sure was better to see it full and not in a drought. 

The fishing today was not stellar, it wasn't bad, but not the best either.  I landed 9 Brook Trout and Allen landed 10 using small spinners.  I caught fish on bead head nymphs, Stimulators, and a few more on assorted attractor patterns.  The largest fish landed or even spotted might have been 8'' but what the lacked in size they made up for it with color. 

The next time I fish this stream, I will be accessing the wilderness area from the southern trailhead.

  11. I've "always" been slender, 5'9 in no way weighed
    more than 125-130, never owned scales and whilst I never eat large quantities and I'm pretty picky, I don't always consume the healthiest.
    i.e. Cereal for evening meal. I was blessed with a few very great genetics and also have In no way been on the diet.
    I started speaking 25 mg of Zoloft for Peri-menopause and also as a result
    of a good deal of alterations in my lifestyle inside 6 months (moved,
    married, task adjust, offered my house, bought
    one more house, daughter marrying, son graduating) Probably a wonder it was connected
    intravenously..Nevertheless I have usually been very energetic my whole
    existence both operating, biking and so forth...

    to ensure that was my drug of selection (endorphin's) I did not discover considerably modify at all in my fat at first, then a year later my garments dimension went from size 4 to an 8. 10-12 lbs doesn't sound like a good deal,
    but on somebody which is around the slender side to
    begin with, produced a large difference in my clothes and the way I felt.
    I had been exercising harder and consuming much less, which to be honest, significantly less and I would happen to
    be starving myself. I do not sit about and my spouse compares me towards the
    Energizer Bunny. I determined after researching
    the excess weight gain to finish the usage of Zoloft and take care of the
    smaller problems in Menopause. 6 Months later on,
    a bit much more moody, but have lost at any time pound I place on.
    I should have been the little proportion of men and
    women that experienced bodyweight gain, but additionally I believe
    the studies never keep track of the data extended enough due
    to the fact it was not immediate with myself. Folks keep expressing the excess
    weight obtain was Menopause and to get a although I considered it until
    I determined to go off Zoloft and find out what happened.

    Family history on my Mother's facet was that all of us stayed slim even through the Menopause. So now after i get upset or moody, I put my running footwear on and hit the asphalt.
