    I finally got to fish after about four weeks of being to busy. I hit a local creek in a section that's new to me. It's about an hour drive from home. I've fished it in lower sections before and got
    only rainbows so I was surprised when my first fish was a Brookie. A more few of those to hand and then a nice little Rainbow. At that point I was thinking of a three species slam and hoping for a cutthroat. The next fish was the one in the second pic. It had clear throat slashes, but looked more like a hybrid. What do you think?

    I would guess hybrid myself because of the parr marks, but I'm not an expert on young cutties. Purdy fish and nice work!

    Looks like a Cuttbow to me. Nice color on both fish above.

    In one spot something about 12-13" took the fly. I didn't land it but it was in a deep hole and I suspect it was a fourth species. I'll be headed up there soon to try again.
