I mainly fish the head waters of the Pohopoco starting right from where it enters Beltzville. I have found it to be very tough fishing, but when you catch one it's a fighter. I assume they are wild trout since I didn't think rainbows were stocked. Overall it's great fishing once you find the hatch and even if you don't catch it's great being out there.

What is wrong with the rainbow's dorsal fin? Is it clipped or is it just the picture?

Yeah...the rainbow's dorsal fin does look a bit funky. I would have to say this is a terrible catch...

No, it is actually a very pretty and chunky rainbow but with a goofy looking dorsal.

Matt, don't take the bait. If you check Swimdude's home page, you'll see that he's just "one of those." That rainbow looks like it may have escaped a mink encounter.
