The highlight was coming to an unexpected waterfall that had a perfect pool at its base. We reckoned most years this fall would not look remotely like this in August, but with the amazing water year we've enjoyed it was in beautiful form. The pool also held living beauty. I saw a legit fish in the sixteen inch range cruise toward a perfect root ball along one of the banks never to be seen again. I did get his little brother out of the pool though, capping off the fishing for the day.
Very healthy fish here, save the metacercariae
Can you spot the fish hunter?
The secret falls.
About average size for the day.
One of the nicer specimens
This is the last fish of the day from the base of our falls; he put up a tough fight that lasted longer than his size would lead you to believe and I almost lost him multiple times at the net.
I will be back to inspect the rootball soon!
