Went to see a friend today to pick up some supplies he had for me. I wanted to fish some H2O the Western side of the Green Mountains where he lives. It RAINED like cats and dogs all afternoon. ! nv er wet the line. I looked at several steams and did some recon. We have a major river here called Otter Creek. I fallowed Otter Creek for miles! It flows North on the Western side of the Green Mountains and ends up in Lake Champlain. The head H2O water to the South has some freestone but the rest of it is a dark winding mud trench with steep banks and the clay is like quick sand. How the hell do you fish something like that with a fly rod? It is home to monster brown trout. Two of its tributaries get monster browns in the fall both are small streams. I never fished them in the fall looks like I will be this season! How the heck do you fish H2O like this with undercut clay banks log jams light colored bottom, clear H2O and deep holes? My normal fishing has always been freestone streams.

I had a very enjoyable evening yesterday. A small hatch had started but the fish did not show up on top. I fished a #6 muddler type fly and got two very nice fish from a small steam I have pictured here.
