Rainbow Heaven West Branch

April 13 2013 Headed out to WB got on the water about 1030am. Had my GoPro on me with half battery life. Started down stream with a double nymph rig and worked my way upstream. The water was quite forceful and i almost fell down a couple of times. I start fishing and catch my first tree fish right away. It sucks, looked like a really good piece of water and i didnt even get to fish it because i was fighting the tree above to save my double nymph rig.

Not too long after my first tree fish I landed a small stockie Brown trout and first cast after that I landed my first WB Rainbow trout. I was not aware until today that WB had Rainbow trout stocked in it. It was also my first Rainbow of the season on the Croton watershed. That said 5 lost flies (to tree fish) later I had landed a total of 5 Rainbows and 1 Brown trout and was off the water by 2pm. Hopefully I will do as well or better tomorrow. You can see all the pic's on my little homemade video. Hope you all like it.
