    Short Hike near Trout Stream

    Went out for a short hike to a Creek known for Trout. Had fun caught some dinner. Mornings down to 28* put a PL in the UQ and gear worked great.

    I'm hoping winter will give way soon so I can take those same types of trips... Still too much snow on the ground around here.

    That reminds me that I got to get a small frying pan, or else learn how to cook fish on stick! Never tried that though. Anybody recommend that method?

    I love cooking fish over a fire. Get a nice hot bed of coals with maybe some small flames still licking up. Then put your whole gutted trout across it on a green stick so it doesn't burn. Delicious.

    Get two Y sticks, poke em in the ground at a 45* angle Y's about 12" off coals. Make a troff out of Foil coat fish with olive oil and lemon pepper, place fish in foil on Y sticks 25% hanging over each end of sticks. feed fire with twigs to control heat. 8-10 minutes dinner, great with Chardonnay.

    +1 on Slick's suggestion. Cleaned, smaller fish (brookies...mmmm) can be laid over a green stick with one end stuck in the ground and the other into the head cavity, then angled towards the fire. I'm 99.9% catch and release myself, but that .1% when I'm way up in the Montana backcountry and chowing down on the day's catch simply can't be beat.

    Frying pans mean dirty dishes to clean, and dirty dishes mean curious critters, neither of which I care to deal with in the backcountry. Be sure to get all of the bloodline out, and always dispose of your entrails properly, too!

    I meant the fish entrails.

    Hey Slick- great looking husky!!
