Mosquitos and Trout
May 21, 2019 - 8:39 PM - by Bucksnort
One of these day, when I can get my good friend and fishing pal in Colorado to send an article about mosquitos sucking blood from the heads of live trout, I will post it. He gave it to me years ago but I can't find it. The article was written by someone who knows what is what with trout. It was written in the 1920s or 30s.

He was looking for a box of flies that he had dropped somewhere along the bank, but was not going to go any farther up looking for them.

Crescent and Carnero?
May 14, 2019 - 7:52 AM - by bamboolives
Heading up to the White Mtns for 5 days this weekend/next week and planning on fishing Big, Becker and Greer lakes. Has anyone had any luck @ Cresent?
