Never kept Summer Trout before with a Lake Surface Temp at 87.3 degrees but I had two frozen water bottles over them in the cooler and smoked them when I got home.

Big surprise drifting over 22 feet of Water using a drift sock and scoring this beautiful rainbow at 12:30 pm today..Was quick to get her back in the water without a measurement as the water temp was 84 on the surface .She swam away fine . I 'm guessing 2# ,16.5" .Hit a Buck tail Jig I tied on an 1/8th oz. Eagle Claw Ball head Jig hook .I attached a Mister Twister Yellow Curl tail that I soaked in Vegetable Oil and Vanilla extract .

A Christmas Eve Tradition ,smoked Trout . This one was Apple chip smoked.I'm ashamed though I bought it at the Fish Market. Wrecked the best part of the Tradition!

Ringwood Brook in May it's Dragonflies but I missed the hatch. 1/2 crawlers and a Spin Fly caught though in the rain. June is notoriously Crayfish bait month. Caught a Ringwood Brook , May is dragon fly Hatch but I missed it .Empty husks were on the rocks by the stream. 1/2 Crawlers and a Spin fly worked on Trout ,Bluegills and Fatheads in the rain though.

Mid May Dragon flies crawling out of their Larval stage on rocks at stream side made for an excellent Trout bait!
