Thread: I hate it when this happens

    Default I hate it when this happens

    When you are trying to fineness that nice rainbow on with your fly and a loon swims in and chases it away! Well I didn't hate it this time because I captured it happening underwater!

    Nice bows for sure. Can't say that I ever recall seeing such a good sized hooked jaw on a rainbow before......
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    What is that at 1:30 at the right of the screen? Muskrat? And then again in the distance at 2:35.

    It's a shame that our culture has developed to the point where a word of advice may be taken the wrong way, but here goes:

    Perhaps we should be leaving those spawners alone until after they're done with their business? Clearly these are a spawning pair on a redd... it would be nice to give them a chance to reproduce, and then perhaps try for them later in the season?

    Loons and ice seem to indicate a lake, likely one in the KB complex in palmer. Rainbows cannot successfully spawn in still water, but go through the motions. Trout trying to spawn in still water are most likely stockers, as wild rainbows will find the running water in outlet and inlet streams to spawn in. Nice video!

    I left the camera in that spot and let it film till it ran out of batteries, as you can see they were not stressed by the camera. I just wanted to capture it on video, I'm not fishing till after they spawn and they leave the area. I tried to give the same advice to that loon, but he didn't listen to me; what can you do?

    I think sometimes they do make it in this spot because its near a water overflow and sometimes there are good hatch years, probably on higher O2 in the overflow and good survival. It is in a lake, KP complex ....rrriiiggghht
