New Years day float to Settles
 
CaneBrake and I hit the hooch yesterday in the kayaks. Gorgeous day on the water with basically the whole river to ourselves. The ice wasn't too much of a factor especially with the nymphing setups we were using. The midge activity was crazy with fish rising all over the place. Small midges on the anchor were key in the euro nymphing approach while using a skinny stone on the dropper. We caught a lot of browns with some bows sprinkled in. It was nice to see a healthy stream bred rainbow as well.

Nice fish. Super pretty bow. Don't see those too often.

Unusual coloration and markings on the 'Bow. Are Brownbows possible?

If so it looks like a good candidate

I haven't heard of a brown/rainbow trout hybrid that has been found in nature but some research shows that some trout farms have created them... very interesting. Ether way great report and thanks for sharing!!

Something happened to the uploads in photobucket I believe. I will try to fix the issue and get them back up.

Nahhh it's just a clean wild fish. I've caught bows in some creeks up north that look a lot like this one. They are just few and far between on the hooch.
