    Go figure, Salmon are starting to run and I go trout fishing! I haven't been out much this year for trout as I have been focusing most of my fishing time on saltwater but when a favorite low water level stream finally passed below 180 cfs, I reached out to my buddy Zak and said it's time!

    This particular stream doesn't get to this level many times a year, only when our goto trout streams are dogs, then this one comes into play. As you can see from the pic below, there is still plenty of water.

    I had big expectations for today but Zak did not, he insisted that 150 cfs was still too high since our best day ever bringing over 200 trout to hand was at 93 cfs between the two of us. By Noon, Zak would be right as we combined for roughly 40 trout.

    The quality of the fish however was pretty good. While I am waiting on Zak to send me some photos of a few nice ones we caught with his awesome camera that was SO awesome that he insisted on dropping the battery into the water to never be found again LOL, here are some photos we managed with our phones.

    A few Wild Browns, the "typical" ones.

    And one of the nicer ones. Like I said, waiting on photos of at least 3 nice fish.

    We only managed one double today and the Brooks were not to be seen too often today either.

    BUT this one was my prize of the day. A Wild Tiger. This is only my 3rd Wild Tiger I've ever caught but definitely the all time prettiest with the fins taking on the Brook traits.

    It felt GREAT to get back out and chase some trout. Might have to do it again Monday. ;)

    Lol. The one stream the chartreuse was perfect due to the clarity. The other, I had to go to brass as it was very clear.

    Have you actually attempted to catch them in Mass, or just hearsay?
