The few that I had to eat were somewhat bland...even back in the 60s. The smaller trout = far sweeter. Back in the day there was much less air pollution than the EPA & state allows now = many more mayflies and minutae that made for much sweeter tasting meat and faster growing trout. Can't believe how rotten the few that I've kept over the past decade, from areas with special memories, have tasted...
