Hello! I just spent a week backpacking in Wind River Reservoir, Wyoming. One day we hiked into Upper Deepcreek Lake to fish for Golden Trout. We spent five hours fishing. We tried lures, flies, and live insects. Between five people and three hours of fishing, we caught one monster golden with a yellow and black lure (we released after taking a couple pictures).
We saw lots and they seemed to like teasing the lures. They also seemed to be high jumpers. We saw several jump and least a foot out of the water!
I’d like to hear other people’s experience with Goldens. Where did you go? Did you catch any? Did you use lures or flies?
