Finally caught a trout!


Recommended Posts

My dad and I have been fishing Springwater Creek, the inlet to Hemlock lake for the past couple years trying to latch onto a trout, something neither of us have done. 

 

The monkey key is finally off our back after 3 years. I THINK I landed 1 brook and 2 rainbows. Can anyone confirm?

All rainbows only allowed to keep one rainbow each

They’re all rainbows? Man I suck at identifying them. The biggest of them had really bright red spots on it which made me think brook. (We didn’t keep any of them)

All Rainbows. They look different until they go to the lake. They have to be 15" to keep. I try to avoid catching them in the summer, as it stresses them... especially if you're using worms. They swallow them and are tough to release unharmed. They're the future of the fishery.

Yellow tail and yellow fins tell me thats a brown, your “brook” is a brown, a brook trout is a char, which means like a lake trout, light spots on a dark body, not the brown you caught, be happy tho. You got two rainbows and a bonus brown. Good for you.
