Thread: Any idea what these are? (South Boulder Creek)

  1. Default Any idea what these are? (South Boulder Creek)

    Caught a bunch of these beautifully colored trout hiking down to South Boulder Creek via Walker Ranch. Pulled 5 or 6 from the same hole. Just trying to figure out if they're brooks or rainbows due to the green coloring and pink spots. Any help? Thanks.

    Von Behr strain brown trout, imported and populated in the US at the end of the 19th century and early twentieth century. First introduced to the Ausable River in Michigan where they flourished. In the years since they have been established throughout America. Von Behr were native to Germany thus the moniker German Brown.

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

    That was the first thing that i thought of as well. Also his hands look dry, squeezing a trout with dry hands is as close as you can get to killing a trout without taking it home.

    Didn't meant to scare the cr*p out of all of you. Can promise that I was not squeezing despite it looking like that, and that my hands were wet on the inside. Not sure what else I can do to really prove that one, but I understand the legitimate concern. All the fish made it promptly back into the water safe and sound.

    Thanks Davo. Grew up lake fishing in MN/WI so this was my first real fly fishing outing where I actually caught something. 5-6 browns had me walking on the moon!

    Have done a bunch of lake fishing with a fly rod and caught everything from largemouth to shallow running baby walleyes, but catching a trout on a fly rod has got me HOOKED now.

    Grew up in the Twin Cities and fished lakes around the area when at home (Prior Lake, Minnetonka, Crystal Lake, etc). Would take a couple of trips per summer up to Mille Lacs, Brainerd and Northern Wisco (some Superior fishing) as well.
