Homewater, Skittish Trout, Browns and Beetles

The first trout of the day.
Beautiful little brown.
Average Ogden River brown.
A dark brown. Many of the trout will take on a darker tone in the shadowy canyon.
Low flow means pocket water and rock (boulder) hopping.
Nice Fall brown with crimson spots.
Sitting on a boulder and casting to a nice pocket.
Nice male brown trout.
Typical brown looking to make my beetle pattern a meal.
Almost all the trout were caught with a black beetle with an orange top for easier spotting.
Casting from a sitting position.

Casting to seams between the rocks.
Jumping brown trout!

Early Fall Fly Fishing

Bonneville Cutt with nice orange slash under the jaw.
Sitting in one of my favorite places. I'm more comfortable here than in a recliner.
Typical size cutthroat for this stream.
Small brushy creek with beautiful water and small beautiful trout.
Trout like this are such works of art.

Fiesty Cutt.
If you listen closely, the water will tell you where the trout live.
Little skittish brown. Stealth is key in catching them.
This is a good-sized fish for such small water. I'm satisfied with trout like this.
