A couple of weeks ago a co worker told me about a small brook coming off of Mt Washington that held some trout. Knowing he doesn't fish I asked how he knew and he showed me some pictures his brother took of a few trout swimming in a small pool. That was enough for me, this morning I got up at 4 am and drove up to the lot just below the Cog Railway and mDe my way about a mile up the trail to what I now know is Clay Brook. I spent a couple of hours there and caught a bunch of native Brookies that were just beautiful, with the biggest gong around 9-10 inches. While it was far from easy walking along the Brook, it seemed that every pool I found that had depth and was fairly flat held trout. They were a ball on my 3 weight, I caught some on an elk hair caddies but most were on a bead head Pheasant Tail. Some of it was sight fishing, which blew my mind in such a small stream. The bonus? It was still pretty cool along the stream while I was there, no humidity or heat yet!

Hi Dave nice report.  I took the liberty to set the pictures so they show in the post.  Go to Help to see how to do this.

See Yah
Thanks

Nothing like wild Brook Trout . Nicely done. 



Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was
cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time.
On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words,
and some of the words are theirs.

Thanks Lee, for some reason I am struggling with figuring the picture posting thing out. I'll get it someday!

David take it from me and Lee will testify to this. I without a doubt messed up loading videos pictures more than anybody here. You'll get it . Keep plugging away.

David go here to see what I did.  Also you need to rotate the photo's before you upload them.  Pictures 1 and 5 need to be rotated.  Also concider starting an album of your own on the site, go here to see how.

See Yah
Thanks

 Nice report, I have a friend that lives just a short distance from this spot and he fishes it often.
