Some weeks ago I landed a number of trout with damaged gill plates; this trout today had a red nick on its outer gill plate.
The videos below sums up the action for the afternoon; trout taken about every 10 to 15 minutes. I started the trip without my Contour Video camera, but the action was so good, I decided to walk by to the truck and get it. I lost a good 20 minutes of fishing time, but I made up for it after I got back to the gorge and started landing rainbow again.
Sorry the sound didn’t record for this video, don’t know why---I added some music that I thought might compliment the action of this trout.
This video is a little long because it took me quite a while to land this rainbow. I was using a 6X tippet in the super clear water. This fish is one of the best I’ve ever landed on the Sipsey. One will land more trout here if they use a lighter tippet. Hope you guys enjoy!
