A Couple of Bright Spots on an Otherwise Gray Day

Today was one of those late fall days that keeps most fisherman off the water and in the house.  Most, but not all, and I was one of those that just had to get out and see what the trout might be up to.  The sun hid behind the heavy clouds, and the air was damp but still.  Last night's rain brought the river up some, but it was still mostly clear but quite chilly.
The fishing was unhurried and pleasant despite the chill, and the trout cooperative.  A couple of nice rainbows and brown came to hand, and this monster that took a black beadhead bugger, brightened the day considerably.
The other rainbows came on nymphs, and a simple soft hackle took the brown. 
Sharpen your hooks!

opted to get out myself despite the drizzle but it was actually quite mild and pleasant. Nice job getting out

I fished Friday in this same area. Although it rained the whole time, the fish were cooperative, and I took a few with sucker spawn, A pink Squirrel and a red zebra midge.
This picture looked like the top of Mill Race looking up river, correct?
