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!
