Good sized rainbow & 3rd up brown for such light rods.
All would be fun. Well done.

Very pretty water. ...and fish!

Some skill involved in keeping a hopper fly airborne with a 2-weight!

And brookies too! They're on my wish list.

We have some pretty good brookie fishing here in BC, but they are more prevalent in Ontario.
Here in many smaller lakes, they are stocked.

Interesting for me, pretty much a non fisherman. Trout is nice to eat. As is most wild fish. So much more flavoursome.

We've had trout wash up sometimes in our creek during floods. Someone must seed a dam or more upstream.

Thanks for the photos.

Here's my 'best' from last summer - 3 1/2 pounds. The 2 Kokanee (land locked Sockeye) it coughed up are on it's side.

Really nice fish on the light rods Mic, very impressive.
I thought I was "over the line" when I went from a pair of 4 wgts. to a 3. I've not used it yet, but both 4's have caught rainbows and cut/rainbow hybrids to 5 pounds.

I would almost think a 2wgt would cast 25# mono like a level #2 line, a 1 wgt. would for sure.

Cute little browns too.
Thin water can sometimes yield some amazing fish.

Appreciate the sun when it does come out.

darryl, I'm running a 5lb tippet. Generaly a tapered tippet shortened to 7 feet for the twig water. Keep adding to the tapered leader as its required.

When debris is a problem, slightly heavier tippets are a must.
