Im not joking about the Moss taste, my entire family tastes the Mossy taste too!

Does anyone have an explanation as to why they taste that way? Im not joking about this. IS it the time of year that you catch fish  that they taste like Moss? Anybody Know?

Well I don't know anything about the trout at Taney, but I keep a few every week for dinner here on the White river below Bull Shoals and they are very good. Just look for some that weren't just stocked. You can tell by the colors of the trout and look at the anal vent. The ones that have been off the hatchery pellet food and start eating natural foods, mostly scuds, sowbugs, crawfish and snails will have their anal vents swollen from passing all that natural food with the hard casings. When you fillet them the meat has an orange tint and when brined and smoked they taste like salmon. Also great to saute them and then top it with toasted almonds, butter and lemon sauce or a lemon, butter and caper sauce. 

Never heard any complaints from the friends and family that have come for dinner.

Good tasting fish does not need brined, sauted, smoked, or capered.  A little butter for cooking and maybe a little lemon to cut the fishy taste for those that don't like fish.

We always bring a couple coolers and load up with filets, sirloin burgers wrapped in bacon and tri tips to bring home! Hundreds of dollars worth everytime. Oh and breakfast sausage in bulk too! 

I cant figure out why those burgers are so good. I like the thin ones too with the dollop of butter in the middle
