I returned to my favorite trout lake again in the end of August. Unlike last year the weather was pretty good. No rain at all and bright warm sunshine.

The fishing was excellent, I caught over fifty wild Brown Trout, the largest being about six pounds.

The fish I kept:

These were the biggies, all around five pounds:

The scenery, this place is so beautiful that catching fish is just a bonus.

Thanks guys,

This year the weather was warmer than it usually is, (during the day that is, the nights and mornings were still around 5c), so the fish were biting like crazy. The action was so fast and furious on hardware that I didnt do much flycasting, especially after I almost lodged a streamer in the back of my neck!

The resident black bear was nowhere to be seen, but a local cop who patrols the region said he had seen her two months earlier with two cubs, must have gone higher up due to the heat.

Thats simply great, its a perfect setting for fishing, the backdrop is heavenly do keep posting such intersting reports, what I want to know the lures/bait used for trout fishing, as trout fishing is rather an alien sport for me in mainland.
regards.

The classic way to ctach trout is on the fly, and as far as stream fishing is concerned thats what I do too, but in lakes were you need to cast far spinning is my method of choice.

Very beautiful scenery and nice catch!
Whereabouts are you fishing? I'm not trying to steal your secret fishing spot, just curious as to the approximate location?

congrats on a good day's catch, the trout are of a good size, much bigger than what we catch in South India.
regards

Thanks Michael.

Do you have Brown Trout in South India? I read somewhere that only rainbows were succesfully introduced there.

Up here its the opposite, you rarely ever find rainbows in the wild, but there are plenty in hatcheries and private ponds. I dont think they breed successfully in the wild in our conditions.

Just brilliant , even not catching any fish but being out there in the wild is good enuf although off course the fish is a god send.

Cheers Rohit.
