I caught a couple of beautiful rainbows this past weekend out of a lake north of Wasilla. The fish were in great shape, beautiful colors and lots of weight through the girth.
Both fish had some sort of white specks attached to them in various parts of their bodies. At first sight before landing, it looked like the spots that can develope on spawning salmon when they start to deteriorate. But on closer examination these white specks seemed to be some kind of a parasite or kind of something similar to sea lice.
I have never seen this on trout from anywhere until now.
Can anyone out there give me any info on what this might be? Thanks for any replys.
