Fish: Cutthroat Trout

Cutties up in the Mountains

GF and I grinded out some nice looking cutthroat up in the mountains. Was a tough day, as we spent the whole afternoon/evening fishing but we managed to get the skunk out for both of us!

Didn't pick the best time to go as it was early afternoon when we started and it was a very bright and sunny day out...Few clouds here and there but mostly just sun and little wind. Did some dry fly fishing, nymphing, vertical jigging, jerk fishing, swimbaits, and some cranking. ALL my bites and my fish came on jerk fishing the HD trout and a lot came on the pause. My GF had similar results. At least it was a fun day out for both of us in the bellyboat and her kayak. Pictures and video link below🎣😀

It was nice to cool off and be in the belly boat. Glad we got the skunk out too lol

Nice to see that lake still so full this late in the summer. All those rainstorms on the mountain have really made a difference this year. Nice fish and video.
