Tiger trout in Arkie

Recommended Posts

Amazing they discovered them before in LilRedRiver naturally.  Cross of Brookie and brown.

Speaking of tigers I spotted a tiger musky below Dam3 SpringRiver one day. 😳 He disappeared quickly but I tried for awhile to no avail😏.  SpringRiver fed by Mammoth is a great fishery when like right now all the other tailwaters WhiteRiver, Norfork, Beaver, LittleRed feeder lakes are steady dam releases cuz all are in flood pool....no wading opportunities much.

Pretty fish. Bull trout and brook trout have been hybridizing in Montana.Big like a bull trout and take a dry fly like a brook trout. Big fun.

No, just plugging SpringRiver😉

To clarify

As the link says the tigers are gonna be released in the White and Norfork.  The Brookies have done the best in these two rivers and typically up near the dam releases.   Most oxygenated water what they like   The SpringRiver is Henkly hatchery (Mammoth Springs) where they’re gonna be raised and tiger musky reference was in SR..  Also I thought Brookies were a char and browns were trout.   Interesting hybrid for sure...
