California Golden Trout

This past weekend we were fortunate to have the opportunity to venture out into the Golden Trout Wilderness in the Eastern Sierras.  At 11,500 ft I was able to land some of the most colorful fish I have ever caught.  The California Golden Trout are a species of concern as this native species is threatened by the predation of brown trout and interbreeding by rainbow trout.  Preservation efforts are underway to protect this national gem.
