Today was overcast to partly cloudy but the temperatures were around 40 degrees. This got the brown trout moving around a little bit and some open water was available. I started out on my typical lunch beat and didn't find any trout holding in a couple of the normally rewarding deep holes. They may have been there, but just not interested in the bugger. Briskly moving upstream and working the good runs and pools finally produced a few swirling follows and then a couple small wild brown trout that couldn't resist slamming the stripped bugger. It was nice to find a couple trout after a few days of fishing withdrawal.
I had a nice swirling follow on this bend
