“Start of the Spawn”
“Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll buy a funny hat. Talk to a hungry man about fish, and you’re a consultant.”
― Scott Adams
With vegetation emerging and the ground warming, all the elements are aligned for the beginning of the annual Rainbow Trout on Duffins Creek. It has started, ever so slowly, the water a bit murky with spring runoff, but it has started.
There is a real pleasure for me to witness this large migration from Lake Ontario, many miles below, up Duffins Creek and the many obstacles along the way, to the waters above Whitevale, where they spawn and eventually return to the lake.
This one is the first real opportunity which presented itself. Though the lighting was not ideal, it’s still a nice representation of these beautiful fish. More to follow.
