Mecan River

It was nice and cool this morning with an air temperature of 40°F when I got to the Mecan. That was good for keeping the mosquitos in check. I didn’t use any bug spray, and I didn’t even want to until much later in the day when I hiked out through the woods and the temperature had risen to 60°.

The fish were out on this stretch. I drew some out of a pool on my first cast, and I had landed one by my fourth cast. Most of the action came before the sun got too high, although I still caught a few stragglers after the sky was bright.

I caught nine brown trout and enjoyed a beautiful morning on a beautiful river.
