Anyone ever catch all "four" trout species in the same day?

Yes. But the four defined will be different in different parts of the country. In PA I've caught Brook, Rainbow, Brown and "Palimino" trout. In the Driftless, Brown, Brookie, Rainbow and Tiger.

I have done the Wisconsin Driftless Quad Slam ONCE.

Very rare to be able to do on the same stream.

I had to switch streams to complete the QUAD.

The bow was the last one caught in the same day

on a different stream.

Only done it once as well... also had to switch streams to do it. Ironically, the brood stock 'bow was the first of the day... the Tiger was the last and the only natural Tiger I've ever caught. I should post a picture. It was absolutely stunning. There was a stream I used to fish in PA called Yellow Creek that had stocked tigers... but they don't count

Len, I've done it on the South Fork of the Snake River, but there are no brookies there. I caught bows, browns, cutts and cutt/bow hybrids, along with whitefish to achieve the South Fork Slam.

Here's your Tiger Chi. Wish I had seen them before they were released. As you may recall, I was too far downstream for the Tiger, too far upstream for the Bow. Beautiful fish, both of them!

Got one slam here in PA with the Golden Trout or Palimino never landed a Tiger. Hoping to change that on a future trip with you Chi.
