unique morning trout fishing in Philadephia.
Well guys I decided to go trout fishing this morning. With the rain this week I figured the creek would be at a decent level. So I was up at 4:45am & fishing by 5:30am. the creek is only 5 minutes from my house. For anyone having trouble believing this yes we do have trout fishing in Phila. The trout are stocked but hold over very well. The stream runs right through the wissahickon valley of fairmount park. If you didn't know better you would not believe you were in the city. I caught 7 & lost 2 this morning before the rain started. One nice rainbow about 14" the rest gorgeous looking browns, but that is not what made this day unique. at about 6:30 while fishing my periphrial vison caught the flapping of wings, rather large wings. My immediate thought was Great Blue Heron, as they are rather common in the park. As I looked up there in all its glory was a Bald Eagle, the unmistakable white head & tail it's broad wings, flying below the tree tops, an unforgettable sight, and right here in Phila.
