Big Rainbow Trout Mystery Location

I have been on a quest to find big rainbows at a location close to my home in Gilbert. I finally found that place. The trout are all in the 16" to 20" range and are easy to see in crystal clear water. Access is a piece of cake. Driving time from my home is within one hour.

Anybody know where this is?

Merry Christmas to all.

In AZ an hour from Gilbert, possibly a hatchery?!

Good guess but no cigar. Not necessarily exactly one hour. Could be within one hour.

Either the lower salt or one of the azfgd community stocking program program ponds. Or your local frys marketplace.

Forgetful, Now you have on your thinking hat. The Salt is not it and your guess with community water is also good but your Fry's Market place is "hot" but not it.

You are on the right track.

I will say there will be a lot of anglers there.

The person who guesses it has the opportunity to take me to lunch at a McDonalds of my choosing.

I'm with Goduster on this one, as you initially mentioned you were on a quest to "find" big trout in clear water. That hint in and of itself would indicate BPS.

Otherwise, I'd be thinking Boulder Cove...

Goduster and David,

Badda Bing, Badda Boom!!!

Bass Pro is the answer. Please note I did not mention anything about fishing for them or catching them.

Just a little fun for the Christmas season.
