On a trip to the tribs last week in search of steel I decided to get kick samples to see what the migratory fish could be feeding on. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least as both samples were filled with life! Below are the results of the two kick samples I took, in one tiny section of the stream. While you are out this early season, and any time for that matter, get a sample and see what is tumbling around in your stream, take some photos, and go home and tie. Try to take the samples from a gravel section with flowing water. My next post I will show you how to make a cheap homemade seine.
