Default Glenmore Reservoir today (IT DOES HAVE FISH!!)

I called in sick at work and after a long nap I felt a bit better and decided to spend an hour fishing so I went down to the Glenmore Reservoir and after about an hour I hooked into a pretty little 14 inch Rainbow. Here are some pictures.

What part of the Resevoir did you fish on might I ask.

Default Brown Trout?

That first fish looks a lot like a brown. Or am I mistaken? The halos around the dark spots seems to be a giveaway.

Good going! Nice healthy looking brown. Don't worry about the mis-ID, happens often.

It was for sure a rainbow. It is all the same fish. I only caught one yesterday. Some of the photos just have less light.

I've been looking at your pics again, and I'm sure that's a brown. There are no spots on the tail and the halos around the spots on the body, not to mention the coloring seem to say brown to me. Not wanting to argue but this one bugs me. Am I out to lunch?

If I was betting...I would have to say browns for all 3 trout. One looks more silver which is common to lake browns. Spotting pattern are indicative of browns...but rainbows can also have fewer spots in a lake. Still the halos are a dead giveaway for browns.

Still...I always driving over the causeway and see guys fishing to the south on the point. Wonder how often they catch fish...

Nicer day to be out then today also.

I too am guilty of the "I am sick boss" phone call, only to be wrangling minutes later. Heck I think I've even called in ill from the lake Surely that's gotta be a Browny in them pics no? Seems to be quite spotty and dark for a Bow but maybe it is just the lighting? Anyways, nice fish, water looks nice n clear, wonderful fish friendly net too, I got the same one, if only I'd stop forgetting to bring it when I go out

Thats a brown 100%

No spots on the tail or top fin, I have seen a "silver brown" before, a possible genetic mutation or a missing chromisone(sp) might cause that to happen.

Definately a brown, albeit a pretty dull colored one.

This and the other Glenmore thread have gotten me excited! In 15 years I've only ever caught pike in the Res.

OK,,, I know it's nasty out there but the inlet will shelter you from the North Wind,, This cold is aggravating the fish, with little top water feed,, kinda like hitting coho as they wait out a dry spell for rain to raise the creeks. Is anyone gonna chance a few casts?
