I was checking out the deer trails and all that when I stopped by a fisherman from Sacramento, CA. This is just one of many fish that he caught. He said I should've been there 20 mins earlier because he caught a 15 pounder so I missed out on it. Another fisherman confirmed it. But I got this one pic before my batteries died.

Now that looks like something I would like to do. What river is that? Are there any campgrounds close by?

WOW, umm...excuse my ignorance, but what kind of fish is he holding? I have done some trout fishing in Colorado, but I've never seen a trout that looks like that, or that is near that big.

I'm no fish expert but he told me it is a brown trout. It really isn't as big as most of the fish that the really good fisherman take out of there. They're the guys with the cool fly reels and hundreds of different fly baits. I like to watch them cuz you never know what they will bring in. All the fisherman love the area and say that it is world class fishing here. I'll get more pics of some whoppers soon. Sorry Buckshot I forgot to tell you that the main stream here is called the Cattaraugus Creek. It runs to Lake Erie maybe about 6 milesd from the first pic area. It goes about 40 miles east inland more and the trout run up about 20 before a large dam stops them. But there are many smaller creeks and streams along the way the provide great fishing too. As for campgrounds, there are not many at all except the Evangola State Park campground and some tiny rinky dink joints. Well Allegany State Park too but that's about 1 hour away from here.

nice browns looks like they are in spawning colors.they make for some fine eating.if its spawn season make sure you try and release the females.if you squeeze the fish lightly and white stuff comes out its a male if eggs come out you got a female:wink:

nothing wrong with eating a few ,just try to release the females for the overall health of the stock

I hear you Joel. Buckshot I just use the old worm/hook setup. It works OK but not as good as the experienced fisherman with the million dollar technique and setups. Most of them say that eggsacs are the way to go.
