Dang! Local Salmo Trutta (Not Montana; not April Fools)

On Columbus Day, 2019 (school holiday), I shot off to the nearby mountains to fish for a few hours.  Location is intentionally left ambiguous, but is within a 30-mile radius of Pasadena.

Of note, an informed forest ranger (???) indicated that there were no fish in the creek I was intending to fish.

Well, for absolute transparency, that was the forest ranger’s statement three years ago.

In any case, the brown trout caught using a small streamer was 17 to 18 inches.  I caught and released one other brown trout in that same drainage three years ago, that was about 8-inches.

How fast can they grow?!!!!
