Each of us tried a variety of flies, starting with streamers. We swung them and dead drifted them for the first thirty to forty minutes, changing our spots every so often, and came up empty handed. A change to egg patterns produced the same results.....nothing!
After a few more casts, we decided to head back upstream and check to see if another pool would produce for us.
Over that last hour or so we managed to hook up with six fish, landing four of them - All drop back brown trout, and all caught on egg patterns under an indicator.

It's always a joy to get out on the water and spend some time tossing a few flies to our local WNY fish. That joy is made even better when I get to do it with my family. And watching my boys do battle with some feisty drop back tributary browns was priceless.

See you on the stream!
