My First Brook Trout! Fishing Remote Mountain Lake

22 Sht 2020
107 801 Shikime

Today's vlog we are hiking deeper into the Colorado mountains in search of rocky mountain elk but we discovered a remote lake that has brook trout in it. This was the perfect opportunity to do some fly fishing and catch a fish that I have never caught before. Brook trout are often found in small streams and remote lakes at high elevation.

  • @20 seconds in, what is that way up in a tree over your left shoulder? Nest, small bear? I could not tell from the video. Great video thanks for sharing.

  • I live in southeast Massachusetts and my first ever trout on the fly was a 15.5 inch brook trout on a wooly bugger. I was going for another cast and I set the hook on him. So fun.

  • That last one is a nice brookie. One of the two, actual native trout in CO. Tasty too... has orange flesh like a salmon but more of a trout taste.

  • LFG, not to be that guy. Buy you have your fly line coming out of the wrong side of your reel for the duration of the video. Line is supposed to come off the spool from underneath the reel up into the guides. You have it the other way around (over the top of the reel). Also you need to false cast and not let your fly touch the water. Slow down your cast so you don’t get the snapping noise (breaking off). Then shoot your line further distances after your false casts.

  • Beautiful location ,, Awesome Brooke trout , that larger one was monster for that area ,, the orange belly is a spawning male .. Would be awesome if Stephanie could get into some as well.. Did well here,, fly rods are good in the right places ,, but I prefer to use a spinning rod with a fly on about 5-6ft leader and a water filled float bubble in the high mountain lakes ,termed (fly on a bubble), covers more water and easier to fish around the rocks ...Panther Martin's are a good choice as well usually use size 1 or 2 for Brookies...Remember the keeper size limit for Brookies in Colo. Is 8" max. .. other species are larger or no length limit at all ... Keep the body check on ,, Colo. Has plenty of ticks as well... also watch for poison ivy and poison oak ,, common all around .. Rattle snakes are usually in lower / drier parts of the state but can still be found in the high country also,,just watch where you put your hands while climbing rocky trails.....Good Luck on your hunt .. ..... Stay Safe and God Bless ......

  • Your fly fishing skills are really improving, great job and congrats on that trout. I can't wait until you are on a big fly fishing trip someplace. Lets see it, you working on your fly casting maybe some shooting lines etc, picking a destination, practice your casting and then go on the trip and slay some fish on the fly, that would be a cool video series, like a fly fishing progression.

  • I don't know if anyone has commented this or not. But flies that sink are called 'wet' flies and flies that float are called 'dry' flies. So if you run a dry dropper set up that is a dry fly on top acting as your indicator, and at least 1 wet fly below the surface. Fish can hit either the dry on top or the wet below. Or you can run just a dry on top and have a lot of fun watching fish rise if conditions are right.

  • Brook trout are not native, but are extremely aggressive and a blast to catch. Sustainable harvest allows for reintroduction of native cutthroat, but only if the habitat endures. If you're not harvesting, do your best to protect the hatchery. Stay on trail, avoid going in the water, use barbless single hooks, use a net to land fish, standard trout procedure. Next time try a smaller, unweighted nymph. You'll be able to cast it farther.

  • Work on your double haul it’ll be much easier for reaching those fish that are far out it seems difficult at first but once you feel a good double haul it’ll just click also work on not moving your wrist as much when while you are casting you want it to be soft but stiff (that’s what she said) it’ll help with your loop. Love the video man fly fishing is in my opinion the best type of fishing!
