That's Right!

Yes, it is a Trout! Philip snapped this picture when our extended family group went on an afternoon outing as one of our activities during Family Reunion 2007. We had a picnic on the banks of Roaring River, in Roaring River State Park. Just about 1/2 mile up stream, there is a Trout Hatchery that you can tour, and feed the Trout, but this beautiful dream is looking for his own food. If you enlarge the picture, you can see 2 Water Skates floating on top of the water that he is just about to nibble. The stillness of the crystal clear, ice cold water, that flows down out of the Ozark mountains, defies the name Roaring River, doesn't it?

I knew it was a trout--but was it a speckled trout? If not, what kind was it? LSH

P.S. I love your blog--it is so much fun! I would like to see pictures of your whole house!

Linda, I'm sorry I don't know my fish varieties. I just know it was a Trout because I was told that it was. I hope that is OK! Love,Rachel

P.S. Maybe I'll make it around the whole house with pictures sometime! Thank you for your interest.
