Fished two Adams County streams today. 

The first spot I had never been to. There was a lot of cover for the fish, but it was very difficult to cast into a lot of it. I passed a lot of good looking spots by because of that. I'm sure I walked by a lot of big fish today, but it is what it is. I caught 5 browns and 5 brookies, and also my first tiger trout. Unfortunately, I wasn't carrying my phone so I didn't get to snap a picture. The biggest brown was 13", and the biggest brook was right around 11". Had 2 browns get off the hook right next to me, but they were small so they were doing me a favor. Had about 20 follows, a few by some nice sized fish. I'm guessing they've been caught on spinners before and aren't easily fooled. 

The next stream I got to my honey hole and caught 4 brook trout on 4 casts. On the first cast a nice fish missed it and I caught an 8". The next cast a nice fish rocketed out of the water missing the spinner and I caught a dink. The third cast I caught one that was probably about 9.5". The last cast I got the nice brookie. He measured 12". Then it started to downpour and I headed home.

All fish were caught on a Panther Martin.

I've got a couple questions regarding tiger trout. Are they legal to harvest? Do they ever get big? It seems like in every picture I see of one the fish is small. The one I caught today was only about 9". I'm guessing that since they are pretty rare it's hard to catch one that has lived to a ripe old age.

Fished an Adams County stream today. Caught 4 brookies there. Then went to the South Branch of Ten Mile in Portage County and caught a tiny one there. Also fished Ten Mile near Tower and 87th, but didn't catch anything there. I didn't go very far because it didn't look like a fishy area and I didn't like the constantly shifting sand under my feet. All in all it was a good morning. All fish caught on a small Panther Martin.

Almost a triple play!

Went out with a friend Friday. Between us we each got two browns. Very pretty fish, unlike the stream trout I caught last week. Just quite small.

Chemist.  You are correct.  That is a brown. Pink dots on lateral line have nothing to do with being a brown or a brookie.  No white trim on bottom fins=no brookie

Sundog, just scroll back a few pages, there are all kinds of good videos that will show you what to use and do. Some really good ones back in May 2017
