Let the madness begin

I've been home (at my house that is), for just over 12 hours and I've already been out on the water. No time to waste with only being home for two weeks. This morning I hit up a small brookie stream that usually gives up a few natives. The water levels were about average for this time of year and the stream itself hadn't changed much, even with the record high waters from Hurricane Irene this fall.

As I had hoped, I did find some native brookies...

It felt really good to be on one of my home streams again. Yup, they're not the bigger trout you find out west, but still pretty special to me seeing as it's what I grew up with. The madness has begun here in upstate NY. Maybe I'll fish every single day that I'm here? Hitting the Schroon River this evening for some more fun!


  1. Alec,

    I've really been enjoying your site. I grew up in Schroon Lake and enjoy the summers where I get to head home and seek out those small brookie streams. No matter how beautiful these mountains out west are, I still love driving up and seeing the Adirondacks. I look forward to following your site.


  2. Thanks Ben. That's really cool that you also grew up here. You've probably fished a lot of the same brookie streams that I have. I'm glad you appreciate them too. Thanks for following!
