Skyler if you ever want to link up and fish let me know. I've fished with James a few times and im in the army as well on lewis. I'm in 16th CAB. I rarely find service members in my neck of the woods who toss flies.

Caught a bunch of trout today. Biggest was may 13 inches. I did catch an 18 inch white fish though.. That was awesome.. All fish returned to the river unharmed. Lost and missed a bunch of fish as well.

QUESTION.. Some of the trout had white tipped fins. First tone I've seen this. Anyone know why?

The fish in those photos are coastal cutthroat. Oncorynchus clarki clarki.

The first photo is interesting - red tip dorsal fin - a trait I noticed in the Barnes Creek coastal cutts at Lake Crescent. Oncorynchus clarki clarki f. crescentii.

Sorry... to answer your question: many sub-species of trout and char exhibit white tip or white edged fins. Just the way they are. :)

The distinct white edge on dolly fins is really helpful in sight fishing to em.

Skyler Evans, thanks for a great day of fishing and good conversation. Maybe next time we can start higher on the river and try to avoid the crazy bridge jumpers!!! LOL
