Hehe. See the above video on Utah's trout stocking program for the mountain lakes. This might trump using dry hands to handle a fish for a streamside pic. Can you say "fish bombing?"

Sys they are 3" fingerings .... claim they don't land hard/fast because they are light I guess.

I was up in the La Sal mountains just outside Moab on a bike trip two years ago. Finished up a section of trail and stopped by this lake. Saw some bugs skimming the surface and wondered if there were any trout in the lake. About a minute later said bug was crushed by a trout. Been wanting to get back and fish the lake ever since.

Those Utah mountain lakes offer some incredible fishing, especially if you have a float tube or kayak handy. No, they are usually not native or wild fish in the lakes, but the fish counts are pretty impressive. It's nearly impossible to get skunked up there. I figure you would have to toss a line in there with no fly on it to do so. It doesn't hurt that the surrounding creeks near the lakes also have some wild fish to pursue.

Had some really good fishing trips outside Moab. Also had a my wife taken to the very small moab hospital by search and rescue, when she flipped her quad. Great town!

They've stocked lakes in both the Rockies and Sierra by air for decades. The fish survive. Way too many, in some cases. (Brook trout, stocked in that manner, have become to be considered an invasive species.)

Redietz -

That's a good point about breeding success being a little too good up there sometimes. In fact, the utah mountain lake I hit up a few months ago had all of the brookies poisoned out by the state years back because some many were in there that their growth was stunted. It was re-stocked with tigers, cutthroats and splake.
