My man Kris and I went camping at Red Fish Lake in Stanley. It was gorgeous, amazing and a wonderful time out of town. It was my first time there and the Sawtooth mountains were awe worthy. After we got camp set up we got some lines in the water and while we didn’t catch any whoppers of anything. We kept getting the same type of fish and around the same size. We were not too confident on what it was or wasn’t.

Bull Trout are endangered and have to be thrown back. This seemed too close to call so we ended up throwing back everything we caught. I pulled up the Idaho Fish and Game picture and description and while some of the things matched not all did. Maybe we kept getting adolescent ones? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We plan on lots more weekends of camping and fishing so I want to be sure for next time. Thank you
