Overall, the 2018 fishing season was somewhat of a disappointment primarily attributable to the lousy weather, which kept me (along with a lot of other anglers) off the water. I didnít get to explore all the streams I had planned nor was I able to get my kayak out nearly as much as I had planned going into the season. However, when I did make it out, I did make the most of my limited free time.
I was able to devote 17 trips to trout fishing and fished 19 different streams in 2018. I caught 495 trout in 41.25 hours of fishing (12.0 Trout per Hour). Of the 495 trout; 420 were brown trout, 69 were brook trout, and 6 were rainbow trout.
My best day (numbers wise) was on Friday, August 3rd. I fished two different streams in 4.9 hours and landed 96 trout (95 wild brown trout and 1 out of place rainbow trout).
I view just getting out into nature as success in my opinion, and the pics you show of some of those streams are serene! Most importantly, you have your health which means you can get out there and chose trout again this calendar year. Congrats on the past season and good luck this year!
My kid is in his final year of youth sports coming up and then he's off to college or whatever it is he decides to do. We've talked about it many times but your time is ahead of you yet my friend :-) It certainly does look like you made the absolute best of the time that you had and I would wager that this years weather will be better than last years in the far eastern half of the state and Poconos, where we got particularly crunched with rain from July thru October. I'll take low water over what we had any time. We can at least manage that. Lots of year end review posts.....Maybe I'll sit down and whip on up too since we're on the topic. Thanks for taking the time to write this and post pics. I enjoyed them!
