Went Fishing / Thought Trapping

My weekend started early because I'm heading to West Virginia to do some trout fishing and turkey hunting on Friday and Saturday. I decided, despite the tremendous amount of rain we got, to do a little trout fishing close to home. All the streams are real high so I thought I'd go to a smaller wild brook trout stream with a known beaver pond. Not only did this backwoods pond grow larger but expanded to 4 beaver ponds in a row with 3 beaver lodges! As a bonus, I saw one of the beavers and got some pictures.

This is the first dam with the largest lodge.

The dam itself is about 4 feet high.

Downstream from the first dam going into dam number 2 looks like a bank den.

Fresh cuttings.

In between dam 2 and dam 3, I saw the beaver swimming upstream. Just to the left of the straight standing tree in the middle of the picture you can see the beavers head.

Just to the left of the leaning trees, you can see the back and tail of the beaver climbing over the dam.

Here is the view of the last and largest beaver dam.

A couple of Canadian geese had a nest on an island at the last pond.

I wanted to get some pictures of some wild brook trout today but only had one bite and he got off the hook before landing him. Oh well, It was a great day!

The horizon is your starting point.
