I was fishing tonite and caught some trout at dusk. Couple real nice ones.  Caught one trout, about 16 - 18 inches, real fat. Decided to take him home to fillet. I noticed when catching it, how big it's belly was. I squeezed it to see if there were eggs in it, but none. After I filleyed it, I ripped open the stomach sac out of curiosity. The belly was full of small[ 1/2 inch] red worms. And they were still alive. I have caught hundreds of fish out of the lake and never seen this before. Are these some sort of food, like a san juan worm, or something different. Just curious if anyone has seen this before.

If you click the picture it will go to the host and be blown up pretty large. the fish had allot of these in it.

stagecoach? Looks to be a san juan worm but there are so many different insect larvae that look the same or similar that I don't know what it really is 100%.

OK, I've changed my mind. On closer inspection, that thing is bigger than your foot that I see in the lower left corner. I say it's a RED garter snake ;D
