Where for Art Thou Brother Trout? Fish Number 4 Rainbow Trout! (Salmo gairdneri)

The Brothers' Cabin Camp Marist
We stayed in this cabin for a few nights with our friends and took Bella and Zoe fishing. We didn't expect to catch anything, we were fishing in four feet of water using tip-ups and a huge night crawler and a big fat hook and a weight that was far too heavy...

The girls really enjoyed clearing slush out of the holes.
The tip-ups were set
The flag popped...FISH ON!
A Pretty Rainbow Trout!


Bella (front) Zoe under the arm!
Now the long walk back through the snow to the cabin to cook the fish...stay tuned


  1. what a beauty! Bet it was yummy!

  2. The correct genus is Oncorhynchus mykiss, not S. Gairdneri, still those were BEAUTIFUL trout, especially with those full tails! Those were definitely wild born!
