There is a hybrid cross between a Rainbow and a Cuthroat, call a CutBow... It happens in Nature on its own...

cool looked like maybe a red band too either way cool,
took my middle son fishing on Saturday we worked
Willamette from river road bridge in inde. to social security hole on 51
no luck did end up loosing my good lure in a tree over hanging the the river lol.
tried most of my new stuff, but it was reel high and had no real expectation of catching
all lures ran well could definitely difference in blades for line pulse, speed.
need to put in more Intel on locations, then rebuild lucky and try again
i would like to find some cutties close by.
i found I like the Colorado blade for easy of use and ablity to slow way down plus it's the one i caught on.
:D
totally open to input on locations would like to go to some smaller water ways and work my smaller lures and pretty done pond fishing.

son did great starting to see what real fishing like .

DAD BRAG should have seen that boy shoot out of bed and ready in no time.

he was just beaming out the window of my little ranger.

":peace: look at me, rolling with dad.:peace:"

troutski thanks again

troutski thanks again
Worth it just to hear the stories, funny how quickly they come out of bed for a day of fishing... I can still see my Son doing the same thing...
When the water gets heavy try a more willow style blades, cuts the drag down along with adding a nice pulse..

Good suggestion Chuck.

Newspin, probably the closest cutties will be found in the upper Yamhill system. It's now open year round; but check the regs. It's C & R for now; until May 22. Plus the upper main, and the forks, are flies, spoons, spinners only.
