Mountain Stream Monsters!

Due to sensitive nature of these large, I will not reveal the name of the stream....but after fishing with finsfursfeathers today, I headed to a mountain stream and I got into these beasts...



















It's harder to hook the small ones....right?


I did land some decent ones too though:








Catch-and-Release wild trout.

Beauties, lol, I was really intrigued by the title of this thread. Was that an orange hopper?

Very nice would love do that right now.The only kind of trout I like.I think that that was either a hopper or san juan worm.

Nice photos. Who can pick out the photos of the wild browns from the wild brook trout?

It's actually a foam beetle I tie up just for natives...gives a nice plop when it hits the water and floats nice, easy for the trout to find it.

Yep. Those are browns, the rest are brookies.

If you know someone who is just getting into wild trout fishing, show them the photos in the original post. It's a good series of photos to practice distinguishing browns from brookies.
