Here a nice display of the typical Letort Brown Trout sparse spot pattern. This fish was my first Letort Brown of the year and it took a small paracute pattern. Note the shoulder damage, not sure what could have caused this.

Nice fish. I plan on heading there next year...CICADAS!!!!

Was the damage on both sides? That's the typical place on a fish that a blue heron takes it. That would be my semi-educated guess.

The damage was only to the one side of the fish. Your probably rights on the heron guess, but it was a thin scar. I thought maybe it wrapped itself up in tippet when it was caught in the past. Good luck hitting it on the cicadas, it is definately a very rewarding and frustrating stream.

Very unique fish, only on the Letort do you see trout like that.

There is a good example of a near spotless wild brown from the Letort. I would say Heron scar also, looks like many ive seen from other creeks. Amazing that even in the Letort, how many fish Herons touch instead of us.

Very cool - typical Letort brown all right.
I don't think that's a heron wound - too narrow and down too low on the side. I usually see heron wounds higher up, almost on the top of the fish's body and the wounds are usually large. I'd vote that what you see on this fish was caused by foul hooking.

I've only fished the Letort a few times in the twenty-four years I've lived in York. Sad to say I never caught a trout there and have only seen a few rises - I guess I go the wrong time. Just a gorgeous fish with the absence of the more normal preponderance of spotting.
