Hiking in to fish mountain streams is a great way to actively connect to nature this time of year. Water temperatures are cooling off, and fish are actively feeding to bulk up for their winter slumbers.
Brook trout, featured on our Native Trout Bandana, are a Fall spawning species. When you're creekside, lookout for them on their spawning redds (where they lay eggs). These fish populations will reawaken and be ready for anglers in the Spring months.
