A nice trout I took today on my home river. For 3 hrs of fishing, it was a 9 fish in net day. 8 Browns and 1 Rainbow. I missed tons more- including a large one that wrapped me on a branch.
By the way you can tell if a brown trout is wild or stocked by looking at his adipose fin (top back fin). If it has a deep red on it, it’s a fish that was produced in the wild. Also, every catch and release trout fisherman needs to really treat their catches well. After a long fight, don’t remove that fish from the water. That’s when they need the most oxygen from the water. Imagine running a race and giving it all you’ve got. When your done, you gasping for air. Now think of that fish. If at all possible , never have them out of the water for more than a few seconds.
Sorry just had to get that in there. Hope you enjoy the picture.
