Beginning of the Rainbow

Beat #7 Nisseqogue River

Well after a very long winter and a serious bout of the flu I recently (and finally) had a chance to start trout season off in a positive way. I chose to fish my favorite beat (# 7 at the dam) on the Nisseqogue River in Caleb Smith State Park. If this trip was any indication of how the season will go, I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings. After only a couple of hours using the same exact fly, a size 12 Killer Kebari, I landed at least a dozen very respectable rainbow trout and one plump brookie. I had even more hook ups and long distance releases. Later on just to make it interesting I switched to a Royal Sakasa Kebari and came up with similar results. Just getting out on the water is sometimes all I need but add the ability to catch trout as easy as bluegill and you really can't ask for more.
