    Trout is a salmonid, but I agree, fresh water trout and salt water salmon/steelhead (sea-run rainbow trout) taste quite different.

    I started fly fishing not terribly far from Spearfish, when I was working and living int the north end of the Bighorn mountains. We did a trip to climb at Devils tower and the weather chased us off to do some climbing in spearfish canyon which was mighty fine rock in a gorgeous setting.

    I was hoping it was! Definitely a bigger fan of Walter, than the fish.

    A net would work. I love trout. We would catch them as kids on my parents property in upstate NY outside of Syracuse. There were so many we didn't use bait. We would stand in the large roots of giant trees along the creek and jackpole them into the weeds...lol. My dad was always proud of us. We would pan fry the trout for breakfast. They were brown brook trout.

    Then I stopped in Grand Junction Colorado for a fresh local caught trout dinner.....one of the best meals I ever had.

    I can Walter Trout in bits and pieces. Too many 64th notes for too long for me.
    But trout the fish is a different story

    So, I've been trout fishing many times, and love them ... we have hatcheries around the state ... but, this story is about a fabulous trout paté Ms. Nutz and I used to eat at the Linn St. Café in IC, IA, ... was absolutely AMAZING ... however, NEVER have it with red wine (our fave) ... Jess Sane, here ...

    I lived in the Sierra Nevada Mts. from my late teens into my early 30’s. I caught and ate many a Rainbows. I do miss those days.

    I was just talking about taking a week off in July and doing some camping / fishing.

    Years ago, people I worked with went up to Lee's Ferry, just below Glen Canyon Dam. At that time, they were pulling 5 - 10 pound rainbows out of there. My boss took one of the fish and smoked it. Man, that was great fish!

    I love trout from little Brookies to big Steelhead, and sea trout are cool, too. Quite a primitive fish, actually.

    I’ve never been a fish fan, period. But my kids like fish, and I intend on teaching them to fish. So, I’m going to have to learn to like it... lol I’ve caught lots of fish, but I’ve never caught anything but a trout.

    I just risked death once again by driving over THE FLAMING GORGE! Did any of you know that there are fifty pound Lake Trout in there? But it's hard to fish because of all the FLAMES.

    every year we have the Adam's river salmon run in the fall the rivers are full of salmon returning to spawn , one year about 5 years ago we went down to see the event,( outstanding and smelly.LOL) but I saw somrthing that really was fascinating ,

    there were tons of egg ridden female large salmon looking to find a place to nest, and out of the rocks on the shore trout , large ones would come out and ram the salmon causing them to drop eggs , the trout would swoop in and gobble them up and disappear back in the rocks again , then repeat.,

    I had never seen that before.

    Only been trout fishing once, with my late FIL. Didn't catch any, but would love to try again.

    Do love eating them though. The best I've had is at the Smokey Mountain Trout Restaurant in Gatlinburg, TN.

    I used to love to catch and eat trout when I lived in New England. But ever since I moved to Pittsburgh I'm too scared to eat the fish out of the local waters. :(
