Labor Day weekend and still the Adirondacks find themselves in the grip of the hottest summer on record. I had received a request from my master of the web to help out his college room mate with a trip for him and his father. With the unusually dry summer I had tried to wait for improved conditions but their and my time constraints were not looking good for later in the fall so I said lets get her done. They as much as anything wanted to check out the trout fishing community I am creating here. We met up at the last vestiges of civilization and I led them down into the magic valley. They loved my stream side command bunker which is located at the center of this awesome trout fishery. Water temps were in the mid to low 60s and the water heights were a little better than I expected so I was hopeful that some fish might be willing to come out and play. Due to the low water dad decided to fish with his 2-weight and have some fun. The sun was super intense with the lowering angle and the water was crystal clear so I was hopeful at best. They had to work at it and we walked past a lot of water that is dynamite under normal conditions but some nice fish were caught.
