The tail says 100% brook trout....lakers have a deeply forked tail. looks like a nice brookie not in spawning color to me....Nice fish! Why didn't you guys catch more?caught this fish at fourmile lake on sunday evening. At first my friend and I thought it was a lake trout, but the fins on it definitely belong to a brook trout. your guys thoughts.
No bull trout in fourmile....not a splake either....splake are nothing more than genetically mutated theme park monsters....the ODFW doesn't stock them....they don't occur in the wild, I don't think 4-mile brookies are gettin' all JIGGY with stocked lakers! What you have there is a naturally reproducing, quality wild fish!!! David say's he would have taken it home and ate it!!!Definetly a Bull trout. Nice one at that.
