Is this a invasive lake trout preying on local cutthroat scenario like you read about in Yellowstone?

Probably more like an invasive legend preying on local fishermen.

That fish is dead.

Probably, especially if it's fossilized, as per the previous pic.

My father lives there and we fish it every year and the brown trout in that lake get up to bout 14 lbs I've seen them and caught and lost them and seen other people catch them snagger is marketed to help the town and loins club make money  :tup:there is big fish thou. fish it enery year I'm 35. The scars on those fish if it comes from mineral are the river otters that live there on occasion. good luck to everybody see you at the derby. Come and support the little town of mineral

Opening weekend @ Mineral Lake is a blast.  Here is Bridget & Uncle Bob w/her big fish for the weekend from a couple years ago.

You have to visit it anyway.  Friday night and Saturday night visit the camp ground and Mineral Tavern.  It is well worth the travel.  Lot's of fun.

We would, but PBR Saturday night and I am going to have to work on getting the kid's gardens in all day Friday and may be to tired.  Just too much going on lately.

Larry and I got into a 6lb rainbow. But it wasn't enough.  When we left the biggest fish was 9 1/2 lbs.
