High Cascade Trout

One for the Mystery Travel-Pack Rod. Seven feet of fiberglass "stealth rod."

Packing along the little “stealth rod” on mountain drives over to the Klamath River sure comes in handy. A brief stop to fish a little mountain tributary invariably results in a hookup with a fiesty Klamath River system redside trout. This one took a Zug Bug Nymph. Tried to get away by jumping a record number of times. The fight and spirit in these high mountain, cold water redbands always leaves me in wonder. Definitely the next best thing to the fight of a summer steelhead.
