Where to Fish Lake Pinchot


Rainbow origin not known. Spawning success is evident. Any combination of GT x CT x RB is possible. The interesting hybrids provide a good fishery. Fish in '02 looked like rainbows. Gill netted in 1986? Gil longmire 8/89 caught a few 8-10"ers '89 creel cards 11 RB <8-12", 8 ct?? (gt?) 8-12 ". '93 all fish seemed healthy. Anglers were catching no fish in 2001 so we will sample in 2002. '02 fish were angled in two hours. Fish from 3-10"s seen in '02. Little kern golden trout can look like a 'rainbow' trout.
