Will holding a large Trout he caught from the shore.
I grew up trout fishing in the high mountain lakes of Central Oregon. My first time fishing was on East Lake with my parents and grandparents, sporting the smallest purple and teal life jacket that made me look everything 90s.
Growing up I took every chance to go trout fishing in the summer with my dad, grabbing my Abu Garcia fishing rod and reel plunking from the bank with powerbait and eggs. Even after 30 years of trout fishing, I love fishing with new baits, fishing new locations, and continually learning how to be a better trout fishing angler.
