First Trout of 2010

Spent sometime fishing today with my buddy Brad. We started in Musquodoboit and worked our way around to the Ninemile River. Stopped and looked at the Shubenacadie to see if any Shad were moving yet.
Still too early for Shad it seems but we did find a few trout. There was a hatch of Black Stoneflies going on and off all day but very little sign of trout feeding on the surface.
I had some luck with a Hare's Ear nymph and a Dark Brown Stonefly Nymph. Brad did alright but wouldn't tell me what he was using.

Nice brook trout. Sounds like a good day out. I had a few hours to tour the Musquodoboit area a couple years ago but no fishing. Looks like there are some great places to wet a line.

No surpise, I was also using a Hare's eay nymph!
Great day fishing for this early in the season

Hello Northernfly;
The Musquodoboit Valley is one of the great spots for fishing and wild camping I know of. If you make it back that way bring your fly gear.

Thanks for your well wishes Fish Whisperer. It has been a while but its going to be a good year I think.

Well there is a mystery solved Brad. Thanks for the great pictures. I'll post them later on.
