Second Chance

The local forecast said that it would be raining for the next few days, so when I got out of work on Monday I made a return trip to the small stream located across the street from my office. It’s convenient, uncrowded and there was still more water left unexplored from the first trip.

I did find some deeper pools, mostly filled with bluegills and shiners, and managed to land this nice 10″ rainbow in ankle-deep water using a size 16 caddis dry fly.

I also came across this interesting little shelter made of branches. In additon to the stone furniture, it also had a nice walkway made from river rocks. I don’t think this qualifies as a home on the river, but it could provide some shelter in heavy rain. It might also be one of the homes built by the three little pigs, but I didn’t find the other homes made of straw or brick.

It was a quick trip and I’m sure there will be others.  Enjoy!
