Between the Floods Brown

With water in southern Vermont and eastern New York a mess after hurricane Irene ripped up the region last week, Tim Daughton and I decided to go out and survey the damage firsthand on one of my favorite super-secret streams. We packed up our gear and his two boys and headed out on Saturday morning.

Irene left us with some new pools, log jams, and structure to learn, but we had a great time and caught a few fish to prove that they are still out there. So, when the water comes down again after this latest storm, it’ll be time get out on your favorite river and start naming those new pools.
