Default Tiger trout

AT and I went to an Idaho lake where Tiger trout have been introduced. Now we know what they look and taste like.
I turned on AT's camera and just as it came in focus it closed and would not open again, must be dead battery? Oh well, that is why I always used a Kodak, no high tech stuff to go wrong. Next trip will have pictures if we have to take three cameras!

The Tigers were introduced to the lake almost four months ago and were reported to be between 10 and 15" in length. The lake is full of shiners and that is why this lake was chosen for the Tigers. They grow fast so we hope to have lots of fun next year when the ice melts.

Since we mostly fish for fun we use barbless hooks and losing some is common. We did keep four between 11 1/2 and 14" for eating and let the rest go. I am sure we had a few up to 15" that were almost "in hand" but fell back in the lake.

Next time we will take our kayaks and not fight climbing over the big rocks around the lake to get near the water.

Good move on the barbless hooks. when i fish for the stockies i always go barbless myself. trout love to swallow the hook. Im sure those 15inchers put up a nice fight.

We caught them on all kinds of lures and flies. Spinners of several makes, spoons of all colors, woolybuggers and regular flies. All spoons had a single hook as did most spinners.

No bait used for trout.

Becker Lake, near Show Low, Arizona, is a fly fishing, catch and release lake for rainbow trout. Tigers are being introduced as "bucket biologists" have added bass, catfish and sunfish. The hope is that the tigers will know on some of the fry from the unwanted fish and sort of control them. If I manage to get up that way, I want to see if it is Ok to keep bass and sunfish.

Tiger trouts are very cool to see. I've seen them a few times but not caught any yet.
