Eel trap in black and white.

Low tide on the Saint Lawrence River

I went out for a photo walk along the Saint Lawrence River at low tide in front of the cottage in Saint Denis sur Mer. Autumn is always a great time to shoot the waters edge with the yellowing sea grasses that are exposed at low tide. Nice colour contrasts. I shot a series of black and white as well as colour shots. I always like the images from this area in black and white. There is still one of the few remaining eel nets setup near the cottage. The eel run has not started yet, the fisherman I was talking with said the water is still too warm, the wind and cold of autumn have not arrived yet. Black and White at Low Tide.

Early morning on the Ausable River West Branch

Fly Fishing the West Branch of the Ausable River

I spent 3 days fishing the West Branch of the Ausable River this September with my cousin Scott. We stayed at the Hungry Trout Resort in Wilmington in the Adirondacks. Fishing wasn’t easy as we struggled to match the hatch. One nice little brown trout was all I got. The leaves were starting to colour up and the views while wading up and down the river made up for the lack of fishing action. I fished the same area the last week of April this year. Matt, one of the guides recommended early June as the best time to be on the river. I’ll have to book for next year at that time.
