Has anyone caught a tiger trout here? I've heard they're in here, but all I've caught are rainbows and one brown trout.

1st of the year with my good luck charm 1st of the year with my good luck charm
My First bass of the year. Not a bad spot to mess around at while the kids play. Haven't had a chance to fish too seriously here. Only a few small bass and sunfish. Heard there's nice trout but I've never been trout fishing and not sure what to use.
