Out and about on this sunny warm en sometimes windy day.
The only thing that sucked today was the brook lamprey I encountered at the stream :-)
The decision to fish the urban setting did pay off as I found plenty of fish, just a shame I missed that larger trout that took my indicator.
The line kept running so I set the hook hoping the trout had taken the nymph .. appearantly not ... i'll be back.

Saw the lamprey swimming in the open water, when it moved into the shore I just had to grab it.

Is that a landlocked population, or do they come up the river?

 

I hate the things. Really big ones swim up the Delaware to spawn. Ugh. Walleye fishermen like the juveniles for bait though.

They have three species here, seagoing, river and the brook. The first two are large blood bloodsuckers.

The brook lamprey only feeds on algea, smallest species of the three.

I remember guys dip netting them at a dam on white clay in delaware.  Just dumping them on the bank.  We would catch trout and find holes chewed into thier sides.  Still aint right to trash them.
