Re: Golden Trout
Interesting Kgl. I've read that real golden trout 'do best' in elevations around 7 - 10,000 feet. The ones I catch are def. the native kind, and I haven't caught any that are longer then 12", but they sure are fun. There is a few small ponds high up in the Gallatin Canyon that carry them. When the hatches are out, and the sun hits the water just right all you see is gold flashes in swarms.
Frank, I don't know about importing from California, these are some small ponds that are miles and miles away from anything. What would the benefit of stocking mountain ponds be? (That's not a rhetorical question I actually am curious.)
I'll look around for a picture or two.
