Trout Pictures

Recommended Posts

Well I've finally gotten around to getting some of my trout pictures on my computer, so here they are. I wasn't sure whether to put this in other species or my fishing trip, but since my fishing trip is currently all bass, I decided on this section.

Anyway, on New Year's day I decided to brave the blizzard that was coming down and catch my first few fish of 2008...here's the first fish of many for the year: ;D

>

It was caught on a 3" silver/black Power Minnow on a 1/8 oz jighead twitched slowly off the bottom in a deep pool below this bridge:

These were the road conditions on the ride - slippery but really a beautiful snowstorm:

>

This was a good 2 lber I caught at the end of December:

Here's a 2 lber I caught earlier today in a new spot my brother and I found. I had him on for about 10 seconds but he got off (I tried forcing him in), then I cast again to the same spot, he was still hungry, and I managed to land him the second try ;D

I'm gonna post another couple pics below...enjoy!

Yesterday morning I went out to one of my trout holes, and they were rising all over the place.  They wouldn't take my Power Minnow, so I tied on a Blue Fox inline spinner and sight casted to the rises, bulging it under the surface above the rises, and first cast, I watched this guy stalk it in about 2 feet of crystal clear water, then finally crush it  ;D

Same story with this guy:

This is a picture of that area, but on a diffferent day:

This is also a different day, but it's the trail I have to walk through to get there:

It may be freezing cold here and snowy, but CT is definitely a beautiful state if you know where to go  :)

Makes me feel cold just looking at those pics. Those are some nice looking trout BTW and it reminds me that it has been years since I caught a trout.

Oh and I think that we should see some more pics of the reel in the first pic there. ;D

Thanks gents  :)

In some of the pix it's a Pflueger Supreme and an IMX, and in most of them its the Stradic FI and IMX.  Both combos are a treat in my pantalones  ;D

Normally for the pictures I'd set the rod on the ground next to the fish for size perspective, but not when there's snow on the ground.  Can't wait to get back out this weekend.

The CT fly fisherman must think your a wacko. Using bass gear and drilling trout, lol. Do they rocket out of the water?  ;DNice fish Tokyo.

Also, must be nice catching fish burning an in-line spinner in, and catching fish on it up here in January.

Definatley try that Saturday at you know where. ;) Especially under the bridge.

Yeah I get some strange looks from fly fishermen that are a very subtle "What are you doing in our fly fishing spot?"  8-)

Luckily, I found another spot that no one goes to because it's about a 10 minute hike to get there, but it's also got a bunch of fish.  Until this winter, I never realized how hard these fish fight - pound for pound, they definitely fight harder than LMB (no comparison to smallies of course).

And Tin, I will try that Saturday for sure unless jigs work well off the bat.

When German brown trout get over about 5 lbs, they are stronger ounce for ounce than a smallmouth. Size matters!
