Fish Caught: Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout Caught: 2

Comments: Landed a couple nice 15 inch fat rainbows while fishing a couple hours at sunrise on Saturday. Lost a couple as well including a bigger golden bow. All caught/ hooked on zebra john (black/ silver copper john) size 14. I used a brown san juan above with just one look and refusal. Also tried a BH hares ear dropper a short time with no luck.

Saw one fish rise just as I had to leave. watched it for a few minutes and didn't see him rise again. I was hoping to get back in afternoon to see if the black stones would hatch, but rain started before I could get back. I've been here in dec and Jan when they do and the fish respond well.

Water was clear and a few inches higher than normal which gave the trout plenty of room and water flow. Water temp was about 40 and air temp a bit warmer when I left. Thank you CFRTU, I love this little creek with its trout.
