Holy cow, nice fish SW and WY2!!!! I've got some gooduns, but not quite that big.

I have the Utah state record for the highest elevation caught Tiger Trout while standing in the same place you shot a ptarmigan: 11,474 ft in elevation.


Tigers are very durable and do well at high elevations. They're all over the High Uintas now. I guess that's OK, but they have replaced the brookies and cutthroats in some of the higher lakes where those trout species, and arctic grayling, are susceptible to winter-kill.

I've got some nice ones at Birch Creek but the last couple times I've been there the water was real low and I did terrible.

There's no way that's Tibble Fork. Looks more like Highland Glen to me.

I can't really explain it rationally. About 10-12 years ago I was very passionate about them. I fished a lot of lakes looking for big ones, and I was quite successful. However the novelty just wore off after they started stocking them EVERYWHERE! The real dagger was when they started putting them on Boulder Mountain. They simply do not belong there. Boulder is about big brook trout and that is that. Nothing was more disheartening than fighting a big fish for ten minutes on a Boulder Lake only to see a big stupid tiger trout on the end of your line. Thankfully they have come out with sterile brook trout now so they can use them instead of tigers in the Boulder Management Plan. I would like them to completely stop tiger stocking on Boulder, but I'll be happy with what they are doing now.
I guess my whole reasoning is somewhat selfish stemming from my adoration of brook trout.

A big brook trout is one thing I'd like to catch. It's been years since I caught one. I'm trying to catch all the game fish in the proclamation and get a photo them.
