The picture really doesnt do this fish justice. It's the top end of what you'll see on the home river.....deep thick shoulders, huge head and jaw and the telltale red stripe of native trout to the Spokane.
More than anything on this particular fish, was the pronounced and detailed amount of spots that went from nose to tail.
Looks a lot like the leopard rainbows out of Alaska. But no, it's not. This guy lives 5 minutes from my house.
