I visited Little Lyford Camps this week to catch native brook trout. But I need to go back to shoot grouse.
John Boland, who retired this year as the Director of DIF&W’s Fisheries and Wildlife Divisions, joined me this week for an angling adventure at AMC’s Little Lyford Camps in the middle of AMC’s 66,000 acre wilderness east of Greenville. The small trout ponds that are spread all over AMC’s property are real treasures and well managed.
AMC has canoes stashed on all of them, and John and I picked out a pond at the foot of a mountain, hiked in, and enjoyed a memorable day of non-stop catching. Many of the trout bore their gorgeous fall spawning colors. Most were caught on or just under the surface, on floating line.
