Do you have "Catching a Tiger" on your bucket list?

I do wish they would figure out what going on with Heninger Reservoir and put some in there but it looks like I may have to hit Reesor the next time I do a Cypress trip. Thanks for posting

But I wouldn't call a bucket item but I have caught a damned rare tiger back a few yrs ago.

A wild stream caught tiger trout in a stream that supposedly has no brown trout in the upper reaches.

Taco,

That is one rare critter. As far as I know only two have been captured in Alberta. Both by biologists. 

Lucky guy.

Did Ressor winterkill over 2017/18?

I've never heard of it winterkilling, but ever since they Rotenoned it a decade or so ago it's been nothing but tiny trout and huge suckers. I think the idea is that the Tigers will eat the later.

My first fish on the fly was a tiger there this spring. Little feller but I was excited just the same.

I've fished tigers in Duck mountain park, they are incredible sport fish. I hope our tiger fishery can be half of Manitobas, if so I'd call it a win.

The tiger I caught was about 6 inches long and that was just after it was stocked. With luck by spring they will be a lot larger. Anyone have a clue what their growth rate is like?
