Former Trout Bum of the Week and guide at Falcon’s Ledge Grant Bench sent in this cool photo of a beautiful wild rainbow trout. According to Grant, the fish came from a small stream in Utah on Saturday: “A friend of mine, Michael Braman, got into some beauties during a nice thick hatch of mayflies (species is still tbd).” Based on the video below, there were plenty of bugs for the fish to eat.
