I finally got some time to take a fishing trip into the mountains and catch some fresh trout. We started shore fishing around 9am and found a cove that was considered to be the spot for 11 mile lake. Within the first 5 minutes, we had a fish hooked as soon as the line was cast. The trout were beautiful and we caught mostly rainbow and one cutthroat. At the end of the day, we left with about 8 fish ranging from about 16-18 inches. I'm thinking about smoking some of the trout and pan searing the rest. It was a beautiful day on the lake and I can't wait to get back out there.
