I'm on a family vacation in California from Toronto, Ontario. I've been wanting to catch and release a golden trout for a while, and I finally find myself with the opportunity to pursue one.
We will be heading to Visalia on August 16. I know of golden trout being caught on the east side of the mountains, but haven't heard any reports on the west side of the mountains. Apparently, most of them are now hybrids with non-native browns and rainbows.
If anybody can point me in the right direction, I'd be eternally grateful! My goal is to catch any of the three varieties of golden trout, as long as they're pure bread.
