Beautiful Fall Brookies

The Brainard Lake Road closed for the season on October 17,2021. So I headed up to the area about a week before. I was actually headed up to hopefully to get a few photos of moose, but I noticed a few fish raising. Got the ole fly-rod out to cast a few flies. Beautiful calm evening and about a hour I'd caught and released nine beautiful Brook Trout. I also found several bull moose and one cow moose, so I also got the moose photos too! A wonderful magical evening.

Beautiful fish and great pictures! Given your screen name, I'm surprised you weren't out there with the other moose.

Gorgeous fish! I tried that lake a few times this summer and got skunked! Maybe I'll have to head up there this weekend to give her one last shot. Thanks for sharing!
