Week long reports while I’m here

Trout are catfish without whiskers

More like carp with teeth, they will eat anything.  I have seen them snub a perfectly matched caddis dry during a hatch of the same to nail a cigarette butt.

When I was here a couple weeks ago a bunch of the trout I caught were pooping moss.   Lots of it too.  

It's because they dig on the bottom to eat scuds. Most research says they are not eating the moss, but the bugs in the moss. Moss is just collateral damage. They aren't capable of processing plants, like most animals outside of cervids. Evolution is cool..

I used to think the same thing but I've seen big rainbows eat a gob of algae floating by... Shane Bush told me they eat it and do get some nutrition value from it.

Got out this morning at 5:30.   Heavy fog and it felt like a big fish day.   Fished for 2 hours.   Nothing, nada.   I think I finally wore out my spot.   I hit a backup I’ve had luck at before.  Nothing.    I’ll get out and try and find some new ones.   Keep in mind I’m looking for big browns not stockers.  Might go catch some stockers just to feel better about myself.  😆

Good luck Pete! I refer to that as stupid fishing. After missing on all of thos sculpin, just needed a spot to catch those stupid fish to get that mojo back.
