Big Fish, Little Water: Trophy Rainbow Lives Where You Least Expect It

Watch a worm fisherman prove once again that a big rainbow trout is a sucker for a wiggler.

Never doubt the size of the fish that you can catch compared to the hole that it lives in. Trout particularly have made a habit over the millennia of inhabiting streams that a minnow shouldn’t be living in.

Here again is proof positive that trophy’s have a way of being where you least expect them to be.

While the video maker could probably have spared us the drama of the music, it’s still a good piece. Anybody that’s fished a small creek or stream in their home area will have a beautiful story to share about something just like this.

When I was about eight-years-old my parents took me to the southern tier somewhere near the Bath, NY area. I remember my grandfather putting a worm on my hook and coaxing me into holding it in a falls on a stream that wasn’t four feet wide. Within minutes my line began to move in the current and when it was over I had the first 16-inch wild brown trout of my life.

Share this with someone who has a great small-water trout story to tell.
