In this episode of The Joy of Fishing Television, Coach is joined by his brother John Van Burger, Fred Von Seggern and Del Miller as they venture to Crane Prairie Reservoir in Central Oregon. This reservoir is home to the “Cranebow” which are large native rainbow trout ranging in size from a few pounds upwards to 20 pounds!
These big, beautiful, hard fighting rainbows like eating bugs, big bugs from the surrounding vegetation. In fact, the guys show you have to catch your own bait beforehand! Spin rods, fly rods, bobbers and bait…the fishing action is non-stop and it will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Then, Wayne brings a cooler filled with fresh trout to Chef Shawn Hanlin at Oregon Coast Culinary Institute. They prepare a quick and easy French campfire dish called “Trout Grenobloise” which will make your mouth water! From the landing net to frying pan…the trout action is well at hand!
