      Drove up to Silverthorne to pick up the raft last Friday to put in storage for the winter and thought โ€œI should go fishingโ€. Ended up having a great day and caught a few fish along the way but more importantly made a few observations that may help you and the fisheries that you love.

      Drove up to Silverthorne to pick up the raft last Friday to put in storage for the winter and thought โ€œI should go fishingโ€. Ended up having a great day and caught a few fish along the way but more importantly made a few observations that may help you and the fisheries that you love.

      The picture of the brown trout indicates unconfirmed appearance of Saprolegnia or the condition Saprolegniasis on the anal fin and tail. I didn't take a sample...something I'll consider preparing for in the future. After a bit of homework and I'll preface this by stating I am not a marine biologist, I found that studies have shown that outbreaks may occur from minor injury from handling. Also, brown trout are often stressed by spawning runs in the fall which may also contribute to weakened immune systems. Although as anglers we don't have much control over spawning seasons, we can follow practices to not disturb these fish on their spawning beds or redds. These fish are often exhausted, don't overpressure them. Do not walk upstream of a redd because the eggs need clean water. Do not walk on a redd because you will crush the eggs or fry. Avoid shallow gravel bars and keep your eyes open.

      With regard to handling, ensure you are using adequate equipment to prevent overplaying a fish, utilize barbless hooks for quick removal, always wet your hand prior to contacting the fish, and return to the water as soon as possible ensuring that the fish is fully resuscitated prior to release.

      I hope this helps...tight lines!
