A few days of rain had put water and color in the stream.I fished the upper section of the stream as the weather was no good forchub fishing. Since the mill pool was open again for members with a special permit I tried to catch some fish there.Unfortunately the lack of water over the past year had filled in the poolcompletely so it was to shallow for decent fishing.Surprisingly the usual present roach and dace where a no show. Luckily…

I left for the stream just as the sun was appearing in the sky.The weather forecast was questionable but early morning started with patches of fog and a clear sky. Fall was here, crisp mornings with fog and still the possibility of warm afternoons.With the sun low in the sky I could not really have a good look in the water and thus had difficulty with spotting fish.I scared the fish off before I could make casts with only on…
