Guide Josh Sheldon with a great stream Brown Trout from Wharton Creek, in New Berlin NY
There is little purer than Trout fishing in America. It’s timeless, romantic, and above all else it represents the end of winter. Much of what I learned came from my grandfather, Les. It’s not easy, and unlike other bodies of water, small streams require very specific conditions to be productive fisheries. In streams like this one, if the water is too high, too low, too warm, or too cold, and you’re not properly prepared it’ll leave you empty handed.
