with this thread. I was in a service station and over hearing to gentlemen talk about a mysterious fish he caught. I believe he said circle lake up at hatchers pass. Does anyone know if this lake exists? So here is the story supposedly this was a 8 pound rainbow trout that was only like 3yrs old. He had taken this fish to the Alaska Department of Game and Fish and they confirmed the age but not able to tell him why it had rapid growth. Now this guy is saying that they are experimenting with hybrid rainbows to stock the matsu lakes with and bring more fishing opportunities out to the valley. But when questioning the game and fish they acted like they knew nothing about it.
So here is the discussion. Has anyone heard about this? Is it possible that they are working with these fish? Have you ever heard of circle lake or a hidden lake up by hatchers pass? The guy showed me the photo and this rainbow as massive. Also he wouldnt tell me how to get back to the lake but he did say you could get a smaller fishing boat on the water. Any thoughts????
