Memorial Day has come and gone. This means I’m changing gears into “summer fishing” mode. Starting the first of June I’ll be leaving the lower, hatchery-supported water behind and commencing hike-in wild trout fishing. These trips are typically a full day and involve 3-4 miles of hiking along with some moderately athletic fishing up our local mountain streams. The target is wild trout, especially native Appalachian Brook Trout. They are small in size but big in challenge, requiring effort, stealth and accuracy to catch. If a vigorous day along a beautiful, wild, Appalachian stream sounds appealing, drop me a line or give me a call. I’m ready!
