Anybody care to post some pics of some stream trout so I have an idea of what I'm gunning for? Nature shots are welcome as well.
Trout stream pictures
Last trip to the drift-less area for me over the weekend. Caught 30+ fish over two days including on Saturday when it was snowing out.. Caught my biggest brown (17"..no picture) and a real nice 15".. Several others in the 10"-12" range. All caught on small rap's or various spinners. Just started inland trout fishing a few years ago and it is now one of my favorite activities.. Already looking forward to 2020..
Had a fantastic weekend camping for our annual guys' trip. I've been going up for about 10-11 years now, and with all the exploring I've done over the years on the forest roads I cannot believe that I did find the two spots I found sooner, considering one is less than two miles from camp and the kicker is I can drive to within 20 yards of it. The other is on the same creek, but a little ways the other direction.
The bigger brookie was a super nice surprise as it's the biggest stream trout I've ever personally seen. What was an even bigger surprise was having one on briefly that was HUGE. I'd cast a little upstream with a spinner and thought I was snagged when suddenly the line took off downstream along the far bank. I got a very brief glimpse of it before it dove under a log and got off. Not a great look, but I would have to say it was every bit of 20". Thinking probably a brown. That was an experience that will definitely keep me coming back. I think it's safe to say I've found my new favorite pastime.
Took my daughter camping this past weekend. Good thing the primary goal wasn't fishing as I packed the rods but not the tackle box lol. Still waded around for a while and got to watch our friends' dog have his first experience with water. He definitely loved it. Water was COLD! I wish it was about 10 degrees warmer out because I would have completely dunked myself. As it was with 70 degree temps, boys deep was as far as I could go. My daughter did make it in waist deep before everything went numb lol.
Fished a couple sections of Tainter Creek,kept 4 eater browns seen some biggins,but couldn't seal the deal. Started the morning off throwing #1 mepps black fury,then switched to trout worms and nightcrawlers to finish the day. Very fun 1st trouting experience. I'm definitely addicted. Sorry no pics I was caught up in the moment...Thanks for everyone's input and advice!
