I see them all of the time at Fork and at Caddo. They are beautiful. I do not even see them as birds, just because of the sheer size and beauty. I grew up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, so i know what you mean when you say when you see a lot of them. I sure do miss fly fishing for Golden trout and Brook Trout, and Cutthroat back home. Every once in a while i will bring my fly rod on the bass boat with a poppar fly tied on, a lot of fun to hook into a LM on a fly rod.
