I fish alpine lakes outside of Granite falls on the Mountain Loop HWY weekly when it’s sunny out and of all these times (past 6 years) I have yet to catch a Golden Trout. I always seem to catch Brookies and Cutts. Is there anybody that knows any lakes in the area that have Golden trout? I know naming lakes can be a touchy subject to some people, but I have ALWAYS practiced catch-and-release. I do not enjoy eating fish, I enjoy watching beautiful, natural trout swim away unscathed.
Thanks to anybody that helps in advance. You are welcome to private message me or respond here. I have some great spots i’d love to share with you as well if interested.
