I really like taking rainbows and brookies in El Dorado National forest. Every once in a blue Ill catch a cutthroat, but only in reservoirs. Fair amount of Lake trout in some of them too. Lately Ive been packing in my ultralight setup into the back country and playing with smaller hooks. I nabbed this little guy with a #4 I think... and yes, I know its not great for the slime coat but I insist on petting if I am not eating.
Also love dropping pots for "freshwater lobster"
These guys came out of beautiful Lake Tahoe, just over the drop off in about pretty deep water around Homewood.
