|The trout stream: a great place to escape|
By Kurt Krueger
I?DROPPED a chunk of crawler into the current and let it float toward an undercut bank. A moment later, line peeled briefly from my reel to signal that a trout had taken the bait.
It was the crack of dawn on the Deerskin River, and I was fishing a stretch along the Blackjack Springs Wilderness Area. There was a slight corner in the stream and the fast-moving water was cutting hard beneath the bank.
They do great battle in small streams but once netted, the brook trout is an incredible sight — one of God’s best creations. —Photo By The Author
You could call the outing an escape from lakes that are getting mighty busy as summer officially arrived last week — a time to get away from boat waves, engines and the congestion of a new vacation season.
