Underwater Spawning Season Footage
Scenes of brown trout, bull trout, and brook trout underwater in Montana during the spawning season. A favorite scene is of the juvenile bull trout sneaking in leaving milt on the brown trout’s redd. Also, watch a large male brown trout chase off smaller browns and bull trout. Interesting to see the juvenile bull trout (they have a forked tail and spots all the way to the top of the body) and what appears to be brook/bull hybrids.
In the fall of 2019, I spent many hours motionlessly sitting beside the river, watching and filming. Dressed all in camo, I earned the nickname of the “Fish Creeper”.
