Mountain Cutthroats
« on: September 30, 2020, 09:55:34 AM »
Figured I’d post up some fishing pictures from this summer. I’ve posted pics the past few years of cutthroats from my summer hiking trips and decided to do it again this year. Here are a few of my favorites.

Thanks! Yep all from Washington. All were in lakes, this year I used a jig head prince nymph and a pats stone most of the time.

Gorgeous fish!  Thanks for sharing the pics.  Reminds me of my original home state of Montana; had a good handful of mountain lakes (hike in type) and streams/rivers that boasted those beautifully colored fish.

Pretty fish!

Those are some amazing cutties! if you dont mind what kind of flies are you using? I understand if its a secret :chuckle:

If you are not willing to die for freedom then take the word out of your vocabulary.
