Adrenaline Rush

August 22, 2017

August 20, 2017

Last week’s adventure to Trout Brook took me past the Vermillion River, which got me to thinking I should give it another shot.

Arrived at one of the DNR easements on the Vermillion at about 9:30 a.m., a bit later than planned so I fished a narrow, brush filled section with my spinning rod and a little Blue Fox spinner with a yellow bucktail.  The water was remarkably clear given the recent rain and it wasn’t long before I had a strike from a hole downstream of a brush pile.  A few minutes later I had a solid strike in a little run and brought a nice 12″ brown trout to hand. Missed two more fish before hooking into a second.  The action slowed as the sun grew higher and the clouds in the forecast failed to materialize.

By far the best action I’ve had on the Vermillion.  Worth another shot.  Maybe a big one the next time.  Called it a day a little after noon and headed to Lakeville Brewing Company for a refreshing and highly recommended pint.

Happiness is cast

not with cars blaring past, but

in streams, clear and fast

Adrenaline Rush

Streaky yellow flash

Hook set, tip up, jump and splash

Adrenaline rush!
