Prettiest Fish In New York

Recommended Posts

I fish the fingerlakes, central new york streams, the salmon river and lake ontario and all have produced some beautiful fish. To me however, nothing is quite like the rainbows you get out of skaneateles lake in late fall.

I'm open to other opinions, with proof of course.

Chromeslayer,

I have to admit you got me. I've seen your other posts, great shots :yes: None of the steel I pull out of the samon river has that much color, I still like my "Skinny Green Backs" though. I was shure I would see some Brookies from my original post.

Sorry guys but the best looking fish in NY is not a trout species. Tiger muskies are the best looking (and a little more manly than the Steelhead that wears a pink stripe). :lol: The markings are different on everyone. Here are 2 from Conesus.

Let's face it the prettiest fish is always the one in your hand, it's our passion for seeking them out that makes it so. Here is my second choice.

I always had a soft spot for beautiful Brook trout. Those are some dandys. Unfortunately the native Brookies in my neck of the woods are very small with 9 inches being a big one.

I fished a lake in Canada years ago, Lake Wachonichi, and the Brookies in it were sweet. Probably a pound and three quarters to two and a half average. Hit a couple in the 5 lb range during the week. The most enjoyable trip I ever took. Wish I had reasonable access to nice Brook Trout water.

I really miss fishing those Skaneatles Rainbows also. Used to do alot of it. They are not only beautiful fish but are strong as hell for their size.

These are all beautiful fish in there own right and nice pictures guys.

Chromesalyer, you do come up with some magnificant pictures.

Keep them coming.

Thanks

Glen

I love those steelies but those browns with all their stream colors are as remakable as it gets. We are so lucky to have this fishery right in our back yards. Every time i go i count my blessings on the way. Just the chance to be on such beauties is a lot to be thankfull for.
