I went out this early November to go after some Bonneville Cuthroat Trout that is located not far from my families cabin on top of the mountain that sits at around 10,000 Feet. I fished a small head water that has strictly cuthroat in it and the lake I float tubed that has only Bonneville cuts in it. I had a great time even though it was pretty chilly out.. I got to the creek a little too late this year where it started to get some ice on it but still managed to get the little one! It had magnificent colors on it and I look forward to fishing the creek next year with more success!

Very beautiful fish, thanks for posting! I love native cutties.

I don't believe that many people would think to fish in the neighborhood of 10,000 feet this time of year. I bet it was a little chilly up there!

Nice fish! I am also trying to push my trout-flyfishing season as late as I can. What did you get these fish on?

Stay warm and keep fishing!

This creek is definetly a place I want to fly fish in the late summer after all the High water gets off the mountain.

I really like fishing mountain streams because the water is so clear, the fish so pretty and native and they generally don't get fished that much from where I am from.

Jmd, In the lake I like to use a double renegade, and in the stream I was using a smaller black wooley bugger with a marbou tail. kinda a smaller one so that those smaller cuts can get their mouth on it.

I thought that looked like a Woolly Bugger - one of my all-time favorites. I'll have to try those Renegade/Double Renegade patterns around these parts (northern lower Michigan) to see how they work. Again, nice fish and sounds like nice territory to fish for them!
