sick looking trout
I am teaching my son how to fly fish, he is loving every minute of it. I took him to a 2 acre stocked pond here in town today. The water is murky as is everyother body of water in this county. Anyway, we saw a few trout that were swimming with their top fin above water, just swimming in circles. Their bottom jaw was a very pale white and atleast 1 side of their body had very large blotches of white covering 90% of that side. They didn't get excited about any fly he through and his fly line didn't bother them even whe sitting on their back. A couple that we saw were along the bank and appeared to be scratching themselves along their sides on anything that they could. Anyone got any ideas? We did also find a few that were dead and a large pile of filleted crappie in the water.
