Hit Sherwin and Chinns today. Windy windy windy windy. The lakes were way way down. Still some leftover snow. My friend and I got the skunk for three hours, but his stepdad got 2 small brookies and a nice splake.

Fish the stream below and caught countless beautfiul brookies between 4-7 inches. Blue, green and orange all over them. We drifted worms and used some homemade flies.

Great time, but I wouldn't reccomend the lakes right now.

Ive caught splake that look just like brookys and some that look like lakers.Some are so close that it takes a DNA analysis to tell them apart. Seriously!!

Yeah Slayer is right they caught a big Splake out of Carter that they thought was a new state record brookie a couple of years back...I think they had to do the DNA thing with it to tell it was a Splake...if I remember correctly...

You do remember correctly! That guy was one pissed off dude.He told everybody that he had the state record brooky until his bubble was burst.
