One of the big attractions when fly fishing in the Parkland Region of Manitoba is a trip or two to Twin Lakes. Twin Lakes has tiger trout. Tiger trout is a cross between a brook trout and a brown trout. They are aggressive and can grow to impressive sizes. They love to eat forage fish but they will at times, key into chironomids and other lake staples like backswimmers and boatmen! What I love is their tenacious fighting power. They always seem to have another gear when you think you have them subdued. Of course their unique vermiculations and their fall colours make them a great trout to photograph.
