    Default First Brown, plus a Tiger? Goose lake, WA

    I finally got a brown trout. Spent the weekend up in the Gifford Pinchot national forest, hitting a few of the lakes. Unfortunately i forgot my camera so the photographic proof is missing.

    I pulled a 16" Brown out of Goose lake.



    Pretty little lake. Lots of bank and gear fishermen. We had my cousin 13 year old daughter with us using wedding tackle and a worm. Very productive for her. My cousin and i using fly gear didnt have much luck beyond my one. I was very exciting catch though. The water is very clear so we were able to do a lot of sight fishing. I saw the fish cruising the area and made a decent cast. The trout then proceeding to stalk the fly, circling twice before striking. Very exciting.

    My other cousin, a gear fisherman, the day before caught what we think is a tiger trout.




    The odd thing is we dont think that the lake was stocked with tigers....

    I take your word, beautiful lake.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Hi Vans,beautiful Fishing Spot,also it's definately a Tiger Trout.
    Having read previously about Tiger Trout I went searching through The Trout & Salmon Handbook,A guide to Wild Trout by Robin Ade where it tells on page75 Tiger Trout are a hybrid between Brook & Brown Trout,also it says they can occur in the wild.

    Thanks for the replies guys. It was a lot of fun. Frankly,i was worried my lake technique wasnt going to get the job done. Thankfully i got the stench of skunk off.
