Bryce's first Brook Trout


Bryce waited for only less than 30 minutes until the strike of the Brook Trout 

Bryce's also caught a Yellow Perch (his first also - no picture available), which he caught only 5 to 10 minutes after he caught the Brook Trout. All in all, he caught two fish in a span of one hour. The Yellow Perch was the only one caught in the Belmont Lake State Park for that day.
