I am under strict orders not to publicize this brook trout stream. So I will only say that it is somewhere in New England, unless it’s in New York, or maybe Pennsylvania.
The hiking is arduous, with the very real possibility of being treacherous. If I turned an ankle or something it would be very difficult to get out.
I tried to capture the steepness of it in these pix.
There are some legitimate 8-10 inch brook trout in here.
I really like hitting the small streams this time of year — before the understory grows up and I find myself in the middle of a thicket of prickers.
