Re: more local trout action
Nice fish. I really like to catch brook trout I've only caught them one time in a creek up above Jenkinson's Lake IIRCC in Northern Cal about 10 years go. They were small like that first one you caught. I don't think any were as big as that last picture.
Thanks for sharing!.
