2015 Caribou Hunt

By Troutnut on September 19th, 2015, 3:28 pm
A week ago I returned from a hike-in, float-out, solo caribou hunt in the Arctic. I've posted the whole story in sections, but here are a few previews of the spectacular scenery.

I'm posting it for identification purposes.

Caught my first cutthroat trout!

By Troutnut on August 17th, 2015
I was in Portland this week for the annual meeting of the American Fisheries Society, and I had time early Monday morning before the sessions started to meet up with a fishing buddy from college (thanks, Willy!) and try for some trout. That area is in the midst of a serious drought, so fish were hard to come by, but we each managed to draw a bit of interest in our flies, and I finally landed one fish.

It was only about 8-9" long, but it was my first cutthroat ever! I've been running a website called "Troutnut" for far too long to have never caught one of North America's major species. Problem solved now. Next up: golden trout? One can hope!

Just had to share this grayling photo right away.

By Troutnut on July 30th, 2015
I've been lucky enough this summer to see a tremendous amount of good scenery and good fishing during my work on three Alaskan streams and breaks in between. I have a backlog of good photos to share from all these adventures, once I eventually have time this winter. But this one I just couldn't wait to post.

Summer 2015 Fieldwork Video

By Troutnut on June 28th, 2015, 2:10 am
This summer is intensely busy because we're beginning the first season of real fieldwork on a complicated new project. We just completed June sampling and I put together a video of what we're doing, including some really nice fish videos of feeding juvenile Chinook salmon, dolly varden, and Arctic grayling in interior Alaska:



More details about the project, including context for some of the things in the video, are available at the Drift Model Project website.
