Thread: Brown Trout or Black Trout - Question

  1. Default Brown Trout or Black Trout - Question

    I just got back from a fantastic trip on the Limay River in Argentina. Huge browns and rainbows were aplenty.

    I have a question about something I've never seen before. During the 6 day float we saw a few MASSIVE sleeping, brown trout (6+ kgs). They were a dark black, had a hooked jaw, and the eyes were white (completely blind). They were not sick and were very strong. One of the people on the trip physically netted one (ended up in a big wipeout and a bent net) and then when he let it go it only swam 5 feet away and fell asleep again.

    Does anyone have a theory about what is going on with these fish? The normal browns migrate up the river from very deep lakes to chase minnows.

    Thanks,

    Al

    Interesting story, I have no idea, but if you have any photos from your trip we sure would like to see them!

    My buddy did get a photo, so I will post it when I can.

    I am a photographer so I have lots and lots of Argentina photos as well. This was my 4th trip with Andes Drifters. They put together a superb trip. If anyone has questions about an Argentina trip I would be happy to respond.

    I am brand new to this forum, so I'm not sure of the best place to post trip photos.

    Hi,

    Never heard of such fish, but Welcome to the forum anyway! We have a photography thread in the Lodge Den forum where things get viewed a lot. It would be nice to see some there and you can also post on General Discussion if you want. Here is a link to the photography thread it has had over 12,000 views so they will be seen; http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...otography.html

    Glad to have you in the group,

    Ard
