Last 2 outings...and 2 MONSTERS from yesterday

I'll put the monsters at the end of the post so you have to look through all of it

Last week I complained about the rain, so Monday I headed to White Deer thinking it would be perfect...it was not. It was very low, so much for complaining about too much rain. I did manage 16 on the foam beetle.

This was the nicest native from that day:

Got 3 holdover browns...or they will be holdovers, maybe.

Thursday I went to Penns in the morning to throw some spinners around before the sun got too high...managed 16 of average size, also got a few snaps of the local scenery.

The sunrise on the creek:

After that it was off to a few mountain streams for some natives. Got several over 10"...the most ever in one outing and ended up with 62 natives for a total of 88 trout on the day. Enjoy these picture, I think the fish are beautiful...I put the monsters at the end as promised.

One of the bigger ones:

After the release of one:

Few wild browns mixed in:

Tried out a new beetle color...worked well, but I like orange better

One last thing...as I was fishing Monday on White Deer...I kept thinking I smelled propane or natural gas...I kept just dismissing it, but then I found this pipe bubbling and of course smelling like natural gas..went over to the RB Winter State Park Office and reported it and they put me through to the forest service to report it so hopefully it will be taken care of. I had no idea gas lines went through there!
