Giving thanks

A simple thanks one day out of the year is never enough. I have a lot to be thankful for and the people who are close to me know that they are truly appreciated and loved. I am so grateful for everything they give me. Normally for Thanksgiving I invite someone or a few people who have no one else in their lives. Thankfully, this year I was unable to come up with a single person who is not with family and loved ones. Enjoy the harvest festival!

This is a world class brook trout fishery with careful monitoring and controls . while on the water we were approached and filled out a creel survey.

And scenic beauty galore. We camped in tents on the river and had food provided by the guide.

You must have a very experienced guide to fish here due to very strong currents and a large hydro dam project.

Also, a good guide will get you onto the fish!

People will give me heck for not recalling exactly all the lengths and weights. I caught less fish than the boys but mine were all the best.

In three days I caught three brook trout and they were all trophy…
