Have You Ever Caught Trout Or Salmon?

By December 8, 2012

Follow me on:

Ronnie Garrison and fish pictures Trout and salmon don't live everywhere but they are fun to catch. I have been lucky enough to go to Alaska twice and caught a variety of salmon on each trip. I also fished in Yellowstone park and caught some cutthroat trout. In Georgia I have caught rainbow trout in a couple of streams and in a couple of our lakes, too. \

Tell us your trout and fishing stories in the comments section below.

Have You Ever Caught Trout Or Salmon?

I also have been to Alaska twice and caught a variety of salmon and many rainbow trout 20-26″ on a fly rod. The fish are beautiful and strong for their size. Arkansas’s Little Red River has some fun trout too! The BEST fishing I’ve ever done.

New Mexico has trout fishing year round in the northern half of the state and from October/November through about April in the central part of the state. I’ve been trout fishing my whole life, both trolling on lakes and from shore at lakes, streams, and ponds. It’s always exciting to catch trout. We also have salmon in a couple of lakes up north but I’ve never fished for salmon.

I am fortunate that0ne of my best fishing buddies moved to the Oregon coast for the fishing. He has become one of the most proficient fisherman in the area and I have caught several salmon fishing with him. The largest I have caught weighed 35# and his was 55#.
A fresh sea run salmon in the 30# range will give you all the battle you want and then some. We fished in the Siletz River at Lincoln City about 1 mile in from the ocean.
Unfortunately the salmon population has all but disappeared and the fishing has been shut down until it recovers. My friend and his local buddies have swithched to offshore fishing for tuna and halibut and I hope to give that a try this year.

Growing up in New England i learned to fish on Ipswich River brookies,surf fished for stripers & bluefish in Mass. and along the Cape.On the west coast have caught ( & released most) sturgeon, halibut, stripers and rock fish, Rainbows & steelhead in the CA rivers; 2xs in Alaska produced my favorite Sockeye and halibut to fill my freezer along with some( all released) Dolly Vardens ,grayling and rainbows, truly amazing fishing trips. Most picturesque would be along the Snake River below the Tetons and then into Swan Valley ID for the South fork and those huge cutthroats.Now getting to be a little more difficult to get around to these spots and many fishing buds have passed like the waters we fished but the memories are unforgettable.Pass it on to your kids.

Sounds like you have fished a lot of places I would like to visit. One of my best memories is hiking to the Seven Mile Hole on the Yellowstone River and catching cutthroat trout – a first for me! I agree completely about passing it on. Some day I will be limited to sitting on my dock fishing my pond but at least I will still be fishing.
