You've really got to see this one full-size to enjoy it. It's my first attempt at a 360 degree panorama stitched together with the latest and greatest version of Adobe Photoshop.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the Namekagon.
There are no trout here, but this beautiful river in Alaska is home to large Arctic Grayling and several species of salmon.
This nice brown trout was so well-camouflaged at the bottom of the stream that he required a zoom lens, polarizing filter, and digital contrast enhancement to photograph. My friend Ian and I watched from the bridge as this big trout fed on nymphs for several minutes, and then we took turns trying to catch it. The selective brown practically laughed us off the river.
A whitetail deer pretends to be a moose, sticking its head underwater to graze on rich aquatic vegetation.
My girlfriend took this picture with my camera, and I'm not sure how she did it. Instead of being crisp and sharp it has a surreal look like an oil painting, perfect for the scene. (Edit in 2011: Now that I see this picture so high up on the popular list, perhaps I should point out that she's now my wife, so there's no confusion.)
Here's a pretty sunset over a warmwater lake in the northwoods. It may not be trout water, but I couldn't leave it off the site.

This beautiful 20 inch brown put up one heck of a drag-screaming fight. This was one of almost a dozen big trout that hit my flies this evening... and the only one I successfully hooked and landed. That was partly my fault, though. I cannot complain about the action!

Here's another beautiful trout, a 17.5 inch stream resident rainbow. He took a grouse & brown soft hackle during a Hendrickson spinner fall over a riffle--probably as a drowned spinner, but maybe as one of the caddis pupae that I suspect were hatching earlier in the day. This fish was in amazing condition, and it leapt clear of the water at least three times.
