A few pics of Buntzen Lake trout fished from a flyrod with wet flies and sinking line trolled behind a boat w/ electric motor.
Everytime I go there I manage to get a couple. C&R - Let em grow for next time!

sitting back waiting for the strike.....

Looks like some good fishing, you're just missing the beer

Ya a beer would of made it complete.
Im still hunting for the moster trout thats in that lake.

Monster trout eh? About how big are we talking?

Hummm well I dunno, 20+ inch....? They could be in there right?

there might be a few cutthroat that size but i dont know if the rainbows can grow that big when more than half of them are being killed. especially retarded pellet eating fish that eat anything that looks like a pellet like ciggarette butts. but what the hell do i know there could be a huge fish that just sits at the bottom.

I've fished that lake over 1`00 times... There are no big fish in it. There isnt enough feed and it gets fished out as there is a lot of pressure

but more or less the fish are too retarded to survive a winter.

What do you mean bass master?

well, hatchery fish are a bit, well stupid. they need to go and watch the wild fish feeding and what they feed on before they know what the hell to do. There was once a study where they had a tank with a wild rainbow and a hatchery rainbow and divider in the middle. first they dropped a bloodworm in the wild tank and of course it smoked it. then they dropped it in the hatchery side and the thing didn't even look at it. then they took away the divider and threw one in and again the wild one smoked it and the hatchery one watched it do this.Then they dropped another in and the hatchery smoked it. just goes to show that the wild uns teach the new ones.

You may be right bass master but there ought to be some big wild trout in Buntzen Lake. I have yet to venture out to the north end. I belive that there could be some nice trout. I'll let you guys know...... tbc.

i tried trolling the bottom about 50 yards away from the rocks and caught only some small ones
