Introduction to Basic Data on Fish Eggs
By Walt Mueller, Jr. "The Otter"

(Brown Trout, Rainbow trout, Brook Trout, Arizona Apache Trout, Golden Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Steelhead Trout, Whitefish, all Sucker species and the many Salmon species, such as King Salmon, Silver (Coho) Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Chum Salmon, Pink Salmon, Arctic Char, Lake Trout, and Grayling)

We are asked many questions on our eggs products, such as colors, sizes, when to fish, how, times of year, etc. So let's move through some of these most common questions to provide answers and basic facts! Much of the technical data I provide was gleaned from data on the web. All the above listed fish species have either been caught by me with Otter's "Soft Milking Egg"® patterns, or by our customers. I share this data with you as just a plain old fishing enthusiast, not a fish biologist (but a retired engineer), who has observed many of these items in his 50+ years on our rivers, streams, and lakes.
