Spawning time.

I was walking up my home creek and spotted  a surprisingly healthy number of trout spawning this year. We have not had decent amount of rain in months and so the rivers and lakes are very low. In fact I think that the lake has never been this low before, well not since they dammed it back in the mid 1800s.

However these trout seems to be hard as nails and will survive almost anything.

As I was walking up the creek I found a couple of good-sized trout fighting over a female.

Bring on next season!

Fantastic Mr Trout.
