Hmmmm, sounds like a great idea for a campout... PIB's expertly fileted trout for breakfast, lunch, secondsies and dinner... slopers divebombing the lake...

I take a pound of bacon on any overnighter where I am going to fish...I cook the bacon in the morning and same the grease to cook any fish that I keep for dinner in.  It makes the fish taste great...I get alder smoked bacon...oh the taste is euphoric...this way I do not have to pack any butter just a little seasoning salt.  I cook in a ten inch coleman folding handle pan...have been using the same for years now...I have skewered the fish in places where fires are okay...99.99% of the places that I go are above the alpine level where fires are not allowed...

As far as I know fires are not allowed above 4500 feet of elevation...

The fire restriction is 4000' west of the crest and 5000' east of the crest.  Even if you happen to be at a lake below this elevation there is often an arbitrary rule you can't have fires.  A couple ridiculous examples that come to mind are Shovel Lake and Otter Lake.  Both infrequently visited, plenty of wood, yet no fires allowed. dizzy.gif

When I cook fish, I put a sharpened stick through the mouth and into the body cavity. I then push the stick through the tail meat and put it over the fire for about 30 minutes. When the fish is done, the skin will easily peel off to reveal the flaky meat.

This techniques does not work if the fish is larger than 12 inches. For fish larger than 12 inches, lie the fish on a flat rock close to the fire.

I generally stay away from areas that don't allow fires.  In places where the rules are stupid, I might bend them a bit. There are some places in the alpine lakes which see only about 10 visitors a year or less.

Hopefully you are following those stupid rules and not lighting fires where they are not allowed...The best fishing is in the higher elevations...and fires are not allowed..thank goodness

I'm don't often eat fish, but when I do I use a non stick pie plate(also works good for pancakes in the morning), and I usually carry little packets of lemon juice and seasoning salt.
This was a short hike so we had fresh lemons and lots of spices smile.gif

There's a mostly unspoken acknowledgment among the voluntarily impoverished that it's better to be fiscally poor yet rich in experience-living the dream-than to be traditionally wealthy but live separate from one's passions.

MtnWkr - that looks good!

P-in-B: your memories of fishing and eating same in Ontario is interesting. My wife's family is from SW Ontario and one time her cuz came down with about two dozen frozen walleye fillets for us. He wanted to cook us dinner, which meant breading and frying the fish in lard, with several helpings of "canned potatos".  It was the absolute best fish dinner I've ever eaten, hands down.

A few weeks ago I did a week long kayak trip of the lower Colorado River, below Hoover dam. We paddled about 50 miles and every evening we'd catch tons of stripers (striped bass). I've never caught one before and I really enjoyed them on light tackle. Our camp cook is the best cook I've ever seen and works wonders with a dutch oven, but it was his fried stripers that sent us all over the edge. He breaded these fish in flour with some seasoning that I can't remember, then added a cajun seasoning to it. This was the SECOND best fish I've ever eaten.
