    I am an avid trout fisherman and am curious to here about trout fishing around the world.
    The ice has melted off off the lakes at the lower elevations in the White Mountains of Arizona and the trout are hungry! Yesterday I caught two on a bare hook that I dipped in salmon egg juice, thats how hungry they are.
    How is the trout fishing in your area?

    I used to fish.

    I have a trout stream with native trout in my back yard and I'm too lazy to take it up again.

    I'm saving that resource for the famines to come, I guess.

    The lakes arounf here are all frozen over, most of the ice isn't thick enough yet to ice fish.
    When the ice gets thick enough, I enjoy taking a auger up to one of our lakes and cutting a hole to fish for trout and grayling. next month maybe, I hope anyway.
    Fish on.........

    Went back to the headwaters of the John Day river where I grew up. It had been over 30 years since I had fished there. The river, really just a medium sized creek at that point, was some changed since I was last there.

    My wife had not seen the river, or done that much fishing, so she was not at all sure of that 'little' creek producing fish. So she decided to time me. I flipped the hook with a night crawler on it upstream, meaning for it to swing by the rocks downstream. A trout took it immediatly, and ran directly at me after I hooked it. As it when by me, I flipped it out at my wife's feet. She looked at her watch, and then said, "35 seconds. That's ridiculous". A nice 14" cutthroat. In the next hour, I caught a 12" cutthroat, a 15", 16", and 18" Dolly Varden, or bull troat. Had to throw them back.

    It was welcome home. Right now, as the market improves, I am preparing to sell my property in Portland, Oregon, and buy somewhere in Eastern Oregon. Hopefully, in the John Day Valley. Working as as a millwright at 66 in a steel mill is pushing it a bit.

    And I will definately be doing a lot of fishing on the river. And in many of the high mountain lakes.

    I lived in beaverton before it got out of hand. Back about 78.
    Loved it out there. My fav hike was the eagle creek trail, up in the gorge at Bonneville dam on the oregon side. Very nice hike up Eagle creek.

    I also climed Mt. St Helens before it blew. My droppings up there are now spread around the world. Everyone has eaten my crap :)

    And those woods above St. Helens were wonderful. What was that the Gifford Pinchot Forest?

    Ecola beach state park...
    And hikiing/camping up in the 3 Sisters area and over around Bend.

    Man I miss all that. Wish I could still do it.
