Though the Cold River is currently 42 degrees, I was able to entice a beautiful 16-inch brown trout. After drifting five different nymphs through different spots on the river, an olive wooly bugger moved slowly at the tail-end of a large pool on the Cold River did the trick. Fish are hard to come by when water temperatures are in the low 40's so I'm thankful for this one.
