The "beautiful" Mountain Whitefish

These beauties are very willing to take a nymph... any nymph, and have provided me many mornings of fun action. Put on a beadhead hares ear and cast up into a riffle that drops into a hole and hang on. Quite a few rivers in Colorado have them, if you want to add them to your list of fish. Check the Colorado Fishing Atlas via Colorado Parks & Wildlife website for bodies of water that have them.

That's a good quality picture. I do need to put that on the list of stuff I want to catch this year.

Very nice Lance, and, as usual, quite a nice example of the species.
