Brook Trout in the Mountains

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Washington County Stream

First time fishing this stream, and I swear some sections looked exactly like the upper Rapidan in Shenandoah country. Not many stones were coming off like previous days in the Catoctin mountains, but I was able to draw a bunch of strikes on a Humpy, and even landed one or two. After, fishing my way upstream, the stream got narrower, and more and more plunge pools started showing up. I broke out the woolly bugger, and started stripping for some better sized trout. As I was reeling up to move on to the next hole, I lift my rod, and there is a solid 10" brookie. Measured. I have caught brookies longer then this guy, but none as fat. I called it a day, and decided to scout a few tribs, that might be worth a trip.
