Posts: 5Caught these guys at the Catwalk Recreation Area in Glenwood, NM. The Gila Trout in this area are a mix of stocked and wild, with the wild ones not getting any bigger than 6’ or 7’. I love catching Gila Trout, they out up some a fight for how little they are

Size doesn't always matter, sometimes beauty and rarity are more important. Nice photos, pretty fish, thanks for posting!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Awesome fish! Gila trout are on my bucket list for sure, along with Apache trout.

Those are truly amazing!

They also look plump and well-fed for little ones!
