Brookville 1/15/16

      I headed over to Brookville for the first time of 2016 today. The water was at 4.25 to start the day and then bumped up to 4.54 which made for a good day of throwing streamers. The spitting rain and heavy cloud cover kept fish out and about for a while. I ended up going 3 for 5 on browns and landed a disappointing sucker and walleye as well.

I was fishing a 7wt with a SA sonar sink 25 250 grain line that allows me get more buoyant, weightless streamers down to the feeding zone. I started the day off throwing a white mini D&D and ended up switching to yellow after about 45 min. I switched to a yellow/copper Circus Peanut and that produced pretty well resulting in a mid teener and an upper teen (above) that was probably in the 19-20" range.

A Good End to 2015...

          My dad and I floated the Mad River yesterday to do some strip and rip streamer fishing. Flows were up and clarity was down, overcast skies didn't hurt us either. We had  great time and put some solid fish in the boat. Not only did my dad get his first brown over twenty, but he got TWO over twenty! It was a good way to send out 2015.
