    Default Michaux State Forest Wild Trout

    My dad and I went up to Michaux State Forest today to fish a wild brook/brown trout stream. It was colder than I expected when we arrived. I was surprised to see how much the stream has changed due to the recent floods. This stream is quite sandy, so the high water really changed many of the pools. There were also a lot of trees down, which affected the stream as well. Fished a large caddis pattern most of the day. Saw some midges and small black stoneflies. We didn't catch many fish, although we each missed a big trout today. Didn't spook many fish either. I wonder how many trout died due to the flooding? It was surprising to see so few fish in this stretch of stream. The forest is full of mushrooms and lichens right now. Although the fishing was just ok, it was a beautiful day for a walk in the woods...

    nice pics. That is a lot of different mushrooms. May be some good Morels there in the spring. Better keep that quiet though....
