Patapsco Trout

Two nice rainbows this afternoon, one 11-12 inches and the other a very strong and bullish 14-15 inches.

I had planned on spending a pleasant autumn afternoon catching bluegills and hoping for a bass or two with my five weight fly rod. Had about a dozen gills by mid afternoon before I realized the river had already received its fall trout stocking. I moved downstream and replaced my B & B with a crystal bugger which I knew to be effective on recently stocked rainbows. I caught the two trout within 20 minutes.

Water level 1.52 at Hollofield.
