Video: Jungle-Fishing for Rainbows in Costa Rica

We’ve posted a few times about the unusual, high-altitude fishery for rainbow trout in the Central American nation of Costa Rica. It’s not a place you’d expect to find rainbows, but the habitat in the mountains near the southern border with Panama offers cold, clear water for these foreign fish. This cool video from Backwater Fly Fishing shows that the water itself is not so different from what you’d find in the Appalachians of Sierra Nevada: steep streams, plunge pools, and hungry trout.
