I guess the thought of how I plan on seasoning it never came to mind. I would just figure on how i usually do it, skin on, no head or tail, wrapped in aluminum foil with butter and some salt. Pretty much the simplest way I think.

I currently have an, "Amber Apple Ale" (or so you could call it) in the primary that I brewed up for the trip.

If the trout is lightly seasoned and sautéd I would think a light saison that is more spicy and not very funky would go great with the fish.

I did read an article from Field & Stream about a month or so ago about a Scandinavian or something along those lines, method of cooking trout. Where they open the trout and nail it to a cedar plank and let the radiant heat from the fire cook it. That might call for a slightly smokey beer I would feel.

Wheat beer with lemon might go well with the fish, or even cook it with it.

I suppose I could bring up the question then, what kind of hops would be a good choice. I really like the wheat beer idea and would ask if anybody had a good recipe, but that wouldn't belong in this thread.

Baufessor, Were probably going to start at the at Big Springs on the Turkey river, just kind of a nostalgia thing, first place we ever went trout fishing so it always brings back memories. I'm not totally sure where we are headed from there, I do know we plan on kayaking the Volga river, Turkey river, and Bloody Run (water levels willing of course).

So far the general consensus seems to be light, crisp, easy drinking, refreshing beers. I think I can work with that.

Another question just came to mind. Dutch oven's, anybody use one, or swear by them for that matter?
