Default Arizona White Mountains Trout

I recently Fished the White Mountains of Arizona. I love these mountains and and the exotic Apache trout that the fishery offers. I pulled this trout of a heavily bait-fished C&#$c#%t lake at around 9000' elevation that was in full spawn. Got him on a Big Black Leech.

Yes that net is no good for C&R but it was the only net nearby. It was about 16'' and the hardest fighting trout I have ever pulled out of water. Yes, Arizona has some good trout, so go buy a Arizona Fishing license!

You are registered here, we are not registered where you have the photo. It's us that can't see the photo of your fish. If we click on where you should have a photo, it takes us to arizona fly and tie, to which we are not registered.

yes he is a football of a brook trout, and a couple year old stocker in a very healthy nutrient rich lake. This fishery is only 4 hours from Phoenix and Tucson
