I cherish the rainbows here. They’re much better sport than the browns. Simply hanging on for the ride, this wild rainbow launched 4’ out of the water and I’ll never forget the tail slaps. While fighting these fish, you forget to breathe.
I’m unsure if the brown trout are descents of von Behr (German Brown), Loch Leven (Scotch Trout), or both. Both strains are listed as being introduced way back in the day, and hatcheries are on record of rearing both. Though some are more colorful than others, biologists say the trout are likely a mix.
