This is just a friendly reminder to watch out for the redds, or "spawning beds", of our most favorite salmonid. This video, credited to Ben Lupton, shows a brown trout "cutting" a redd. While this one is obvious to see, some of them are not, especially in our local streams and rivers. Be careful where you walk, and try to leave actively spawning fish alone, as they are simply trying to stock the river with more brownies. Perhaps attach a waterproof camera to a pole and get some underwater video... I'd rather see that than a grip-n-grin after dragging an egg rig over their backs 30 times. Most of all, get out and enjoy the sights, sounds, and feel of the beautiful weather!
Check out the rest of Ben's videos on YouTube..... Good stuff!
