Got to my first Adirondack Brookie stream of the year the other day and was pleased to find good numbers of Brook Trout, even though nothing was of any size. It is still a really cool experience walking way into the middle of no where and then catching fish! Here are some pictures.

Thanks for the post. Great pics, and beautiful fish.
I know brookies aren't exactly the most particular of the lot, but which flies seemed to work out the best for you? I'm heading there for a backpacking trip in late June and possibly again in July / August.
I used a size 18 caddis for all of the fish I caught that day. There were small yellow stoneflies hatching and some large mayflies as well, but like you said, the brookies aren't too paticular about what is being offered. I guess it just comes down to what you have confidence in. Size 10 WB's and other streamers of that size also work well, especially if you hit a section that has a lot of creek chubs.
Where are you planning on fishing when you come up?
