I just finished another nice trip. This morning I headed back to the Pine River, this time to a downstream section.
It was raining a little when I entered the river around sunrise. The fishing started off pretty slow, and I caught only an occasional tiny trout.
The weather improved throughout the morning, and so did the fishing. Midway through I landed my biggest trout of the year so far. Midsize and big trout kept coming until I had landed twenty-nine and it was time to head back.
The GPS told me I had fished almost four miles, so I was happy when someone stopped to offer me a ride back to my car.
It was lunchtime by the time I hit the road, and so I headed to Pumphouse on the Mill in Wild Rose for a sandwich. The food was good, and you can beat the outside view of the mill pond.
