Always let the little ones go, so they can grow! Wild trout can thrive for years.
Fun fact: Majority of trout die before their first birthday, but when they survive some can live up to 20 years!
Anglers often forget about Stone Fly movements on our tail waters in the wintertime. This gorgeous #rainbowtrout was sitting in a deep pocket off a heavy ripple waiting for food to pass by. A well placed cast and a good drift will help you catch fish in these tougher lies this time of year and you don’t always have to have size 24s on to get them to eat!
