    It is the middle of winter. Close your eyes and dream about May and June. The sights the smells they are intoxicating....even with your eyes closed.

    [​IMG]

    The sounds of water....the smell of the outdoors....It is all etched in your memories.

    [​IMG]

    The world is new and beginning its rebirth.

    [​IMG]

    Oh my .....it is almost impossible to describe the smells and the scenery.

    [​IMG]

    The wind in the trees and the baby birds chirping.

    [​IMG]

    A bee buzzing.....

    [​IMG]

    Unexpected discoveries on the way to the stream.

    May I open my eyes now? I believe it is time to fish.

    You are longing for those warm days just before dusk...

    The water is almost over your waders!

  6. Trout are a trash fish, akin to largemouthed bass. What is needed is a few nice northern pike in those creeks, maybe some walleyes or muskies.:lol::lol:

    While these photos are on Michigan and one Idaho trout streams they convey the message as offered in this thread's title. One reason I love to trout fish is because I love the places where trout live.

    Our youngest son lives in Bozeman, MT. He's shown here fishing a mountain stream in Idaho.

    The cowslips (March Marigolds) add to the beauty of this little hideyhole for brook trout.

    This was taken on a fine July day on a great stream. Although the scenery is impressive it depicts one of the negatives on streams. The tall sand slide was/is created by the many canoers who climb to the top and cause a near constant flow of sand into the riverbed.

    I've titled this one "Summer Evening".
