Thanksgiving Trout

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there chasing trout on such a beautiful day. I managed a couple hours of time on the water and had a few interested brown trout. A truly glorious day to be out and enjoying nature.

I did get high holed by another angler but he had more pressing needs so I left and headed downsteam. This is the only other angler I saw all day.

Downstream proved to be better action as I don't think the other fisher had put any pressure on this section. This brown was particularly aggressive. He took twice but didn't get hooked either time. I rested the hole for about five minutes and on the first cast following the rest, he hammered it again, this time hooking up to become my memorable thanksgiving trout.

It's good to see you were able to hit the water yesterday--definitely something to be thankful for. It's nice that the brown was so obliging too!

Yes, I was definitely very appreciative of the bounty laid before me by nature. We also had quite a bountiful dinner to be thankful for that evening. A beautiful day all around.
