Hello, tarol?

At least he caught one - didn't get skunked.
Is this the Golden trout variety? I always caught Rainbow at Portal Forebay in the Sierra NF - past Huntington Lk. and over Kaiser Pass.
Moose Lk. is a great vantage point. Thanks. Great photo!

Great...

Was wondering if rainbow are NATIVE to the Sierra - guess they are, along with Golden and Cutthroat. Okay, I got it! Thanks for the info!

Re: Great...

Native? No. No fish are native to the High Sierra besides the Kern and Little Kern Rivers. These lakes were fishless and full of frogs until we came along.

Yes, that's a ...

"hot-button" topic. The California Red-legged frog, I know. Restoration ecology is in order!
Didn't mean to sound insensitive - sorry.

The same thing is happening with the northern Leopard frog in my home state of Washington. Seems to be blaming that on global warming...
WHAT'S NEXT to GO??? A bad situation...
