I was there on 4/1 and saw the same. I had no idea what these trout were but now that I hear the term "tiger trout" I understand. We need to gain focus on the Root if we are going to keep and advance this stream as a great trout river.

All,
Not to be a skeptic, but are you certain these are Tigers?

ANother thing, this stream is a beaut! Use to be a day when fishing was exceptional from where you could jump across, all the way down past Choice. I haven't made it down there yet this season, but let's try and keep the S.F. a precious resource! Not to say your aren't!!!

This talk of "tigers" has me very interested!!
Thanks for the repos guys!!

What a beautiful fish, caught about a 10-12 inch Tiger out of there the other day. I'm thinking they must be stocked. though I never caught any brooks there until the last couple years, interesting!!

With all this talk of Tiger Trout I thought I had better head down there and try to catch one myself, for some nice photos, before the official opener hits. The trout were very cooperative, usually catching at least one fish from every "pocket" I fished. Even with the low clear water, the fish were aggressively attacking my rapala.

I caught mostly browns but also a smaller rainbow, but none of tigers I had hoped for. But two of the browns did have extremely white leading edges to their lower fins, something I had never noticed so defined before.

I didn't fish all the way up to Wisel, actually spent most of my time downstream of the co. rd 12 bridge. How far down from Wisel have you been catching these possible tiger trout. If I can swing friday off I might have to go try agian.

One other thing, I found three dead trout in about a 20 yard strech of stream, about a 1/2 mile down from the bridge, anyone else notice this.

I guess I have caught native browns in the past that have a white line on their fins, but these were not Tigers.
There is more than one "strain" of Brown trout introduced into our waters. SOme definitely need a few more seconds out of the water to be admired than others.
Not doubting you caught "tiger" trout, but the frequency has me a bit skeptical.

However, there is three real decent Brook trout streams that feed into the S.F. So, I guess it is possible!

Take some good "stills" next time and bring them over to Trout Day. I would love to see them and chat about that stream. Many a fine story!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!!

took a freind trout fishing today caught a trout that had no spots just thick black worm tracks. i caught this fish in nepstad. what kind of trout is this? and why do the trout look differant?

ill buy a dig camera mine got stole out of my truck and take a butch of pictures next time i go.

oh by the way i had 13 fish over 12 inches today. great day to be fishing except the 12 inches of powder to walk in.too bad opener is this weekend most of the fish i have been catching will be gone soon im sure. cant wait till there is catch and release only streams. ive seen private sections of stream that iv fished for a number of years go from an avg of 8 inches to 16 in three years of C&R awsome fishing to say the least.(sorry i will never say what stream.)

happy opener and CPR

troutman,
I'm not doubting your catches, just seriously curious.
Sounds like you had a great day on the water as well!!!!

I think if I go on opener, I'll probably bring the garbage bags instead of the rod and reel, picking up after all of the yahooos!

just to set the record straight the fish i thought were tiger trout were not. just a very colerfull variation of a brown. i was informed of this by dnr staff that shock that stream.

trout days was great. if you have children and they like to fish or they like the outdoors you need to go to the next trout days. I will be taking my little girl in the future.

thanks Jim and the other folks who put the event on.

I caught an 18" Brown last Sunday night on the Main Branch that didn't look anything like my normal catch. It was real beefy and had a totally different color to it....Thought it was a Rainbow at first. Maybe next time I hook um he'll be 20" and I'll get a pic. These fish are absolutely fun to hook up with! wink3.gif

WET NETS!

    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
