I don't know much about fishing down south. I imagine you guys have trout and other popular species, but what else do you guys mostly fish for?
I love hooking into a good Dolly Varden! Used to go fishing all the time up by Trinity which is a old mining town over by Fish lake in Eastern Washington.What's your guy's native trout species? Anything interesting like Dorado or a Westslope Cutthroat? Can you fish for them?
Up here we have Bull Trout, or Dolly Varden, and they can get to be about 40" in length. However most that people catch are about 30"... They are commonly targeted on the Metolius, as that's the only place they still allow catch and release in Oregon, as far as I know. We also have a coastal cutthroats and Lahontan Cutthroats (or something very similar but unique).
We have channel catfish, flathead catfish, crappie, bass smallmouth and largemouth, walleye, stripers, white bass. We have an urban lake program that sticks trout in the winter months and catfish during the warmer months. You can find a lot of different species to catch with a little homework. We have limited shoreline on our big lakes but you can catch all species from the shore line.I don't know much about fishing down south.
