Jim was very happy with his catch of the day. Though the weather provided showers off and on, the fish were still biting.
The beauty of this stream, with only the sound of the babbling water flowing over the rocks, makes this a very favorite of the Trout.
Here he is showing off one of the beautiful trout that was quickly released back into the waters. This is a "catch and release" stream only. It is a beautiful way to save the fish for future generations.
But, while the Trout was lake fishing the other day, he did catch a good sized Rainbow which he smoked with good results. Years ago, we had a terrific recipe for a marinade, but through our moves, it was lost. It is now put together with memory and turns out pretty good. Perhaps a little more brown sugar or maple syrup next time will perfect it.
