Trout country can soothe the soul
By Kurt Krueger

I DROPPED a chunk of crawler into the current and let it float toward an undercut bank. A moment later, line peeled briefly from my reel to signal that a trout had taken the bait.

It was the crack of dawn on the Deerskin River, and I was fishing a stretch along the Blackjack Springs Wilderness Area. There was a slight corner in the stream and the fast-moving water was cutting hard beneath the bank.

My escape was as much away from the rat race of everyday life as it was from busy lakes in the peak of the summer boating season. No motors. No personal watercraft.
