You said on the other forum that you were catching small trout. You weren't exaggerating! Beautiful fish though!

I've never seen a trout that small. They're about 8 inches long when they're stocked here, and they don't reproduce in the wild.

believe it or not, that was the biggest fish that was in that stretch of the stream, most were half the size of that one. but that was the smallest one that could fish my hook in it's mouth.

Funny how some folks are proud of how SMALL of a trout they catch...lol thanks for sharing.

it is a bit strange, I realy don't know what I was more excited about, that tiny one or the 6 incher that broke my line as I landed it. one thing I know for sure is that those wild little trout are far more rewarding than those stocked fish that don't know how to fight and will bite anything, these beauties require hours of fishing time to catch, it took 5 trips to the stream to suss out my first one!

Is this ok with the new rules? I can replace it with an adult if it needs to be changed.
