    Rainbow trout are native to the McCloud river system in California. They won’t be in those streams unless they are first planted

    I hope your not hiking up broke back mountain

  4. Dwight Watson on November 23, 2019 at 11:21 am

    I love cooking with cast iron, but hiking with cast iron? Tough call….

  5. Victor Schepers on November 23, 2019 at 11:22 am

    There is no ?gold in this kind of stream??👍🇳🇱

  6. Hannahcode1 on November 23, 2019 at 11:22 am

    Still can’t find this song you use. ‘another great video’ nice catch!

  7. Millsy on November 23, 2019 at 11:22 am

    I really like your videos man, for the small brooke trout you can actually gut them, season them and drizzle some oil on them. wrap them in tinfoil and cook them over a small fire or place on a rock next to a bigger one. they taste amazing even the small ones haha just a tip for next time 😉 keep the vids coming!
    Edit: and for your snags in the rocks, reel your line in until the tip of your rod is litterally in the water at the snag and then try jigging it out. thats how i always got out my snags in the rocks. Just some friendly advice!

    Eddie’s d*** fine hat!! I commend you on your compassionate euthanasia.

  9. Kevin Davis on November 23, 2019 at 11:23 am

    Nice fish, Love that old school basket. My grandfather would take a double eyed lead weight put it on the fishing line pull the line tight and toss the weight down the line like a zip line the ideal is the weight will travel down the line giving your lure or hook a push backwards and unsnag it. I have seen him do it mostly with lures that is his favorite. Any way you video just brought me down to old memories fishing with my grandfather he has been gone now over twenty years, Just thought I would share that grandpa wisdom with you. Great video

  10. rob rau on November 23, 2019 at 11:23 am

    Never seen anyone gut a trout like that. But you certainly redeemed Yourself by hauling that cast iron pan in the woods. Looks delicious

  11. Holly Cole on November 23, 2019 at 11:24 am

    Yummy! Love trout!

  12. Cragdwella on November 23, 2019 at 11:27 am

    Right on ! Just found your channel ! Love Vermont, and of course cooking up some brookies ! Peace ✌️

  13. crocusflower on November 23, 2019 at 11:31 am

    i don’t mind watching how you gut & clean? a fish as long as it’s already dead. i’ve always wanted to eat a fish like that, freshly caught & cooked on a campsite open fire grill. i will yet. i bet that fire smells good. damn boys, that looks too good.

  14. YsabetJustYsabet on November 23, 2019 at 11:32 am

    **siiiiigh** Man, I love to fish; too hot here in AZ right now, though, unless you go up into the White Mountains or similar. Another little trick to keep fish cool: Dig a nice, cold stone from the bottom of the deepest spot you can find (a flat stone is best) and put it on top of your fish; it’ll hold the cool and damp for quite a while, and you can resoak it if you need to. ^_^ Man, some raccoon’s going to be happy to find those fish-heads later on if the crawdads haven’t eaten them by now (are there crawdads in Vermont? I’m originally from Florida and I don’t know the Northern states that well.) Happy eating to you both!

  15. Pete Turner on November 23, 2019 at 11:32 am

    That’s about as big as they get for a stream that size. But they are tasty!

  16. Donald Fuller on November 23, 2019 at 11:33 am

    I think its just about impossible to catch a native Rainbow in Vt now.

  17. Edd Curry on November 23, 2019 at 11:36 am

    awesome photography

    Great vid. You have a fine partner there. Best to both of you. Frankie in Mass.

  20. Lord of the flyes on November 23, 2019 at 11:38 am

    I got a nice 8in brook trout on two casts after the big storm there still there I let mine go .

  21. Stacey Here we grow again on November 23, 2019 at 11:39 am

    My husband used to trout fish like crazy. I can’t wait for the day he brings me! I know it was parts of the Delaware river at times and other streams and rivers up that way. He also used to fish the mongopue river a lot!

  22. SilverEOD on November 23, 2019 at 11:41 am

    Great video. Brings many fond memories of trout fishing while growing up in NH. I especially remember spending one summer in Errol NH with my Grandparents at the age of 14. We were out fishing for trout and I astonished them both by catching my limit within a few minutes by only using berries I found growing along the stream lol. They were super tasty.

  23. Calvin Lee on November 23, 2019 at 11:41 am

    Damn now I’m hungry for some fish. Great video !

  24. Dale Rash on November 23, 2019 at 11:42 am

    Brook trout are much better eating than Browns, with Rainbows somewhere in between, I also love Lake trout.

  25. Paul on November 23, 2019 at 11:46 am

    Brad,that’s living the good life,very enjoyable.I could almost smell them cooking!Cheers from Toronto.🇨🇦👍🇺🇸

  26. pat goff on November 23, 2019 at 11:49 am

    I like that you use a wicker basket instead of ugly plastic

  27. brian vaughn on November 23, 2019 at 11:50 am

    Torture me not! Lve natives

  28. Edd Curry on November 23, 2019 at 11:50 am

    Enjoyed video. Do more like it.

  29. Deenihan18 on November 23, 2019 at 11:51 am

    Beautiful stream.. those 1st 2 keeper Brookies looked like stockers. Their tails were all chewed up, indicative of hatchey trout. Also odd shape to lower jaw. Smaller 1s look wild

  30. She Who Knows All on November 23, 2019 at 11:52 am

    🤔 *We would just weight the fish bucket strap down with heavy rocks and let the bucket sit in the water. Wouldn’t that keep them a whole lot cooler than being at your side?*
    😄👍 *Love your channel and every single one of the vids!! (Even though you don’t know that sasquatch are real… yet.)* 😏 ☺️

  31. Pete Centofonti on November 23, 2019 at 11:54 am

    Awesome video you’ve done something that I haven’t done and that is to catch native trout I do a lot trout fishing here in West Virginia and that’s one thing I haven’t done yet as catch native trout congratulations man that look delicious

  32. James Hodsdon on November 23, 2019 at 11:55 am

    Great vid. Boys! Here’s a couple of tricks from an old native 1st change your backing line way too much spool memory spool them w/4-6lb. Test . 2nd. Crush the barbs on yr hooks w/pliers , much easier to remove & much quicker w/less stress for released fish! Just keep yr line tight on hooked fish & you won’t lose them 3rd lose the weight, not needed & yr drift will look much more natural =bigger fish. 4th no need to snap off snags in a small creek like that , just wade to the hook ,reach down &free it ,after all it’s 90 degrees plus right?! Lastly, use a quality barrel swivel at the end of yr backing & downsize to a 1lb. Leader. Oh yeah & try to stay back from the creek edge a bit & crouch down some fish in these small brooks are very wary of predators from above! Try these tactics , they truly work, you’ll catch bigger trout & improve survival rates on released fish they are delicate& being caught stresses them greatly. Plus wet yr hand before handling fish you plan to release ! They have a delicate slime layer that protects them from disease dry hands on wet fish can be a death sentence. Again, great vid. Brings back fond memories. Thanks!

  33. Dale Rash on November 23, 2019 at 11:55 am

    I was born and raised in Vermont, left at age 19, and live in Southwestern Indiana. I grew up fishing trout streams, I saw two things you did that were wrong, first, you don’t need any sinker, let the worm drift naturally, second, don’t put your fish in a plastic bag, put them on the wet ferns, and cover them with more wet ferns. I was born in Windsor Vt., where I went to school, and hunted and fished that whole area, I am now 72 years old, and still miss my native Vermont, I also spent a lot of time hunting and fishing Willoughby Lake area as I grew up, I’m envious of you !!!

  34. iamrichrocker on November 23, 2019 at 11:56 am

    Hope some day we will see you and your children doing these same activities..passing on such a great way to enjoy and appreciate Life and Nature…

  35. jaibo1313 on November 23, 2019 at 11:57 am

    Fresh fried trout is awesome!!! We travel to the smokies every year and kill em!!! Crickets work the best!!!

  36. Tina Berkley on November 23, 2019 at 11:58 am

    Hey, did you not need to scale them Trout?

  37. larry thayer on November 23, 2019 at 11:58 am

    That , I’ll bet was sinfully delious!

  38. Denise Waukau on November 23, 2019 at 11:58 am

    You can try them with heads on and get the inside the checks for meat, and that way when the eyes pop out you’ll know it’s done..Also, Browns are my Favorite. I stuff and grill them on grill inside tin foil .mmmm .,..Good. Browns on Menomonie Nation are Real Big. !

  39. Allen Jackson on November 23, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    Nice that you and Eddie are such great friends and have the same type of interests

  40. Doug Hurt on November 23, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    Right there with you…nothing tastes as good as fresh trout cooked in a cast iron skillet over a wood fire. Well, maybe crappie filets dredged in flour and spice would give it a run for its money but it’s as much where you’re at, the smell of the wood smoke and a good companion that is all the spice a good meal needs.

  41. Gary Rogers on November 23, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    You’re taking me back to my younger days. Get as many of those in as you can. One day you’ll be too old to do that hiking and all you’ll be able to do is re-live the days gone by.

  42. Notno Neednot on November 23, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    That is real living right there fella,s!

  43. Rick Clogston on November 23, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    Garlic on fresh native trout????????? You guys did have a permit for the fire ……right? Good video

  44. Brody Mosher on November 23, 2019 at 12:06 pm

    little do they know the small ones are the best

  45. Jere Moore on November 23, 2019 at 12:06 pm

    I have watched a few videos and enjoyed them. Thanks It seems to me, though, that you walk a long way into these beautiful surroundings, like in this video, and then pass on the opportunity to extend the adventure. After that nice meal of fresh trout, wouldn’t it be nice to have had a sweet hammock system to retire to for a night of peaceful sleep? Same for some of your metal detecting hikes, especially the ones in spooky places. I’m thinking what I would give to be able to camp in those places and then have something interesting to do other than just hike and camp. I think you’re missing out on half the fun 🙂 .

  46. Lewis Grayson on November 23, 2019 at 12:07 pm

    Great video guys! The mountainous area you guys hang around is remarkably a lot like my native Eastern TN. Even thought I saw a little Ginsing in one of your videos. We have a few streams around that still support trout but mining got the majority in the early 1900s. Still great for smallies, rock bass and green sunfish though. Keep the vids coming! Love ’em!

  47. Coni Torres on November 23, 2019 at 12:08 pm

    Oh, I envy you, but not in a bad way. You had a Wonderful day, a wonderful place. I could almost taste the trout. Awesome!

  48. Good Guys Guns LLC on November 23, 2019 at 12:10 pm

    Love the adventures and nature as much as the detecting… well almost!

  49. Jeff Blais on November 23, 2019 at 12:12 pm

    Excellent change up. My buddy and I do the same when ever we get the chance.

  50. Doug Wagner on November 23, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    I know it’s an older video, but it made me hungry and nostalgic! Thanks for sharing!
