Winter is Upon Us

I wanted to get up to some of the higher elevation lakes and chase some brook trout. i got dbone to join me and as we entered into wyoming the snow started coming down pretty good. i kind of figured that once the sun came up it would burn off the crappy weather and give us some decent weather. wrong! the sun did make a quick showing, maybe 10 minutes total but other then that it snowed on us all damn day and was colder then shit. on top of that we didn't see a brookie in that lake at all, in fact the two of us only mustered up five fish and they were all greyling. that lake is full of brookies and in the past i have seen maybe one greyling out of every 2-3 trips up there. it was an unusual day all around. i am up there 3-4 times each fall at this time and the weather is always nice and the water is always about 15 feet or so lower. we did fish another lake close by on the way out for about an hour. i did manage two brookies there and a few small cutts.

  1. Those are some beautiful shots y'all snapped - they really capture the colors of the fish and the dreariness of the day. Greyling are way up on my list of native species to catch - looking forward to the day for sure.
