Yesterday after a fun morning of paddling up on the Meduxnekeag by Houlton, I visited one of my favorite Ellsworth area streams on my way downta camp - I always take heart when I show up to a place and the ospreys are in the air squawking - it was a good omen - in a little more than an hour I caught more brookies (5), than I did last weekend (3) fishing 7 streams all day long...the conditions were perfect in every way - naturally I missed the 2 biggest fish of the day - I teased them both out of log jams and was able to see things as they developed and just pulled the trigger a little too quick, both times - early season brookie fever...next weekend will be my last trip Downeast, then I'll start looking northward - conditions should be ultra prime next weekend...Tight Lines!
