Very impressive indeed and stoked you made the cover of FFM. However I now know where this fish was caught and it is not a pure strain fish (Lahontan X Rainbow Hybrid) nor was caught native drainage for Lahontan Cutthroat (San Joaquin River Drainage).

This was a very special fish. It's a wild born fish and an incredible specimen. How pure the strain has remained here i can not say. This fish has allot of Lahontan in it though. All i can say it that this was a way bad ass fish. It's not a planter from where you blab about. Trout Dog, you don't know the Sierra's as well as you think you do. Why can't you just be happy knowing that there's Lahontans that can still compete and hang and thrive. Do you have to have it written about and documented and ruined like almost every other place they once where? Forgive me for not drawing a map to everywhere i fish. If i put places like this on the net, it would be totally ruined in a couple years. These fish are super vulnerable when they spawn. They turn bright red, orange and purple. That's why the last of the Pyramid lake strain got speared in the first place. You may be an educated, ethical fisherman, but unfortunately, most i see around here are not. I've seen it happen too many times. I hate showing up to a once pristine place where i watched nice fish spawn only to find worm dirt, split shot, discarded line and blood all over the rocks. You want that on you conscience. Let it go, let fish live!

Right on, Mikey. I am new to your blog, but it looks like you do right by the fish as a guide and as a blogger. Personally, I'm glad that you are able to share great fishing experiences with others as a guide while reserving some places just for yourself.
