Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Tiger Trout Alert!

Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Tiger Trout Alert!

Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Tiger Trout Alert!

Prior to catching this beauty at Panguitch Lake, I had only seen a Tiger Trout in photos which did this exceptional species no justice. The swirling gold and brown colors, unusual pattern design and rich sheen was a mystical sight as I reeled it in. Unbelievable! It measured 19 inches; just 3 inches shy of becoming a keeper and a fine meal!

I caught a healthy 5 pound Cut Throat Trout that measured 20 inches and set it quickly back into the lake to live another day along with 4 others. My husband was able to keep one he caught and we came home with 3 Rainbow Trout. We follow the guidelines set for by the Utah Fishing Proclamation that is sent out every year. It ensures the success of all species while promoting responsible fishing habits throughout the season.

Wordless Wednesday (almost!): Tiger Trout Alert!

Next weekend we will be travelling to Navajo Lake where we can keep 8 trout each due to a dike breach (as opposed to 4 under normal conditions).  Looking forward to catching the BIG ONE!

It's just a matter of time!

NICE!  I have never seen a Tiger Trout before, and would be thrilled to catch & see one in "real life".  It really is beautiful!

I'm sorry you couldn't keep that beauty. How big do they get if that was 4 inches short of a keeper?

Hi Wanda,

 That tiger trout is a real beauty. I love to go fishing and it reminds me of quality time I spent with my dad even though I talked a lot and scared off the fish.

Wanda, I have never seen this type of trout.  Though, by the colouring, it would probably be more aptly named something like "jaguar" trout.

Wanda, that is such a cool looking fish that you caught!  The best I've ever done is a bluefish.
