Memorial Day Weekend (Part II)
I had a little time to get out this afternoon after cleaning up my house so I decided to check up on the Nissitissit river in New Hampshire. This section is stocked almost weekly from mid-April to late May with rainbow, brook, and brown trout. I haven't done too well there in the past (especially last year since it got very low) but since I didn't have too much time, I decided to try it anyways. The water was pretty high but fishable but somewhat warm. There was a new lay down in one of the roadside pools so I started off chucking streamers. Immediately, I got into a nice fallfish which popped off at my feet. I worked my way to the head of the run where I got a couple nice tugs and got another fallfish in full spawning dress. I figured it might be this kind of day since the water was warm but I continued to work my way upstream through some pocket water. In one such pocket, I pulled out a decent brookie, which got my spirits up.
