It's a secret
Today I ventured out for a couple hours to a secret little stream somewhere in the lower half of the state. I dragged Emily along to enjoy the nice weather, and ended up fishing with me. I walked up to the water and saw a fish first cast hook up on a little bugger, second fish spotted same thing. I couldn't believe it. They are small little cutthroats, but they are a beautiful little fish, almost look like browns, but are definite cuts. When I saw how eager they were to eat, I put on a dry and they were definitely looking up. I caught some fish using the bow and arrow method of casting, just learned from my friend Mike, and surprising enough it worked and wasn't to difficult. I had a fish travel 4ft down water to take a fly it was awesome. I showed Emily how to stretch and flip the line and to my surprise 2 cast 2 fish. We kept fishing bigger holes and catching fish. What a great day. Emily caught fish almost every cast, and I caught a few. I did have one fish probably about 13"(trophy) on this stream, but didn't land it. I will definitely be going back, but can't tell where it is.
