Yesterday, I guided a great fly fisherman, Jason Archibald, on the Lower Provo River. It was a great day, and many fish were caught. Some big, some small. Although the fish that has the greatest story from yesterday is not the 16-inch Rainbow or the many other large Rainbow Trout that got away. The greatest fish story from yesterday is about the trout pictured above.
Is it a Brook Trout? If so, this would be the first Brook Trout I have ever seen in the Lower Provo in all my 16 years of fishing it and 6 years of guiding on it. I’ve seen hundreds of fish pulled out of this river, but never one like this.
