Sorry for the late post wanted to wait for the pics.
Took a bass fishing friend that used to work with me up Hwy88 for his first ever trip to show him the spots to go for trout. Started the day at Red about 7am.
Told him where to run the ridge line for the best spot on the lake in his kayak while I swung around the other way in my pontoon. and he hooks this in the first 10 minutes.
Looked even better in person. About 22 to 24 inch female.
Here is the pic of the two he kept.
After about three hours we moved on to Caples. Mostly worked the rock point just East of the spillway. Caught a bunch of the little 12" brookies there and released them. I kept one that hit so hard that it was to damaged to release.
Isn't that the way it is, you take a friend out to show them your favorite spots and they catch the big fish for the day. Well he is a convert now and it is nice to introduce somebody to a fishing area for them to enjoy.

Nice looking Cutty! Go Kayakers! What was he trolling when the big one hit? Good luck, Eric :)

See, Capt. there are fish in Reds Lake.
when I take a body to my favorite spots, most of the time I let them fish the prime spots. If I can covert someone its just another friend I can call when I need a trout fixen. Awesome fish!

The Captain knows there are fish in the place. The problem is making them cooperate. *8-) On my third cast ever at Red I caught a nice Cutt. It's been down hill sense then. I is my feeling that Red might be a fall fishing lake.

Both of the two shown were on gold kastmaster. That and a gold phoebe were what seemed to work for us at both lakes. Capt, I tend to agree with you or at least very late summer. I think my best fishing at least for cutts at Red has been from the last week of August to the first week of October. July and August seemed to be better to pull out brookies which is what the guys on the bank were catching.
