Lower Elk

Fished elk this morning starting at the legion parking lot and working my way upstream to the posted property. Picked up a couple fish early on small nuclear eggs. Walked back to the lot and then downstream for quite some distance. The water was extremely low and clear, ankle deep on most of the flat spots between slower holes. Pods of fish were present in a few places but with considerable distance between sightings at times especially upstream. If I were going back to elk tomorrow I think I would look further upstream or in the borough park but I think I will be staying on the mile streams in the morning tomorrow.

I also got to use my new tripod for the first time. Picked up a gorilla grip tripod from walmart. It has plastic bendable legs that seem well suited for getting wet or dirty from time to time while providing a quick rest for the varied terrain along the creeks. Gotta work on my aim a bit as you can see from the second picture though.
