If there is possibly a positive aspect of climate change, it could be that some species of fish get bigger (and better to catch) while some glide into extinction. That could be the case in upstate NY with the migratory brown trout on Little Sandy Creek.
Jay Peck and I had another special and epic day fishing on Jim Metcalf’s property hunting for Brownzilla.
Th weather was clear, cool (50’s) and very windy (20+MPH) but that didn’t affect the fishing as we put about 20 Monster Brown Trout into the net that ranged between 5 and 14 Lbs. What was exceptional was that even though the water levels are extremely low, the water is Gin Clear and the attached photos show some special shots that I was able to capture.
More to follow as we have another two days to hunt for a new PR that exceeds 18 pounds. We saw a few fish at the end of the day that were in that class but they were very elusive.
