Wild brook trout trip around the Cape, banner day

Had the opportunity to meet up and collaborate with Geoff from Brackish Flies last weekend. We fished a few streams around the cape and got into close to double digit wild sea run brook trout. Absolutely incredible day. Super fascinating to hear about the life cycle and history of these fish and the streams they inhabit. Recorded a podcast with him for Seven Stripes that will be out in a few weeks. Posting a short report to the site soon but I can post the text here too if people are interested. IMG_1425.heicIMG_0144.heicIMG_0149.heicIMG_0162.heicIMG_1407.heic

Great post. This is awesome to see. I used to fish for them and the searun Browns back in the late eighties/early nineties. The Browns were great (and big) but it was the salters that we really wanted to see thrive.

Now that I'm on the Northshore I've been trying to find natives ( not necessarily salters) close to where I live but haven't found any yet.

I took a ride to a N. Shore trout pond Monday just to watch, and was talking to a guy about sea runs in the 80s on the N. Shore. Oddly enough we both got them at the same place, in the stream for me and in the harbor while smelt fishing for him. That was a long time ago though and there has been a ton of development around the brook that fed it, so I doubt that small population survived...

Thanks Phil.It was really cool to see these fish thriving. Saw some year-of-young as well. And it wasn't in just one system, it was a few.
